Each year, approximately 60 students out of approximately 1,000 participants from across the country are chosen to attend the International Youth Awareness Congress. Five winners, selected by their peers, receive scholarships (1st place – $12,000; 2nd place – $8,000; 3rd place – $5,000; 4th place – $3,000; and 5th place – $2,000).
Students will create their own “Moose Kids Talks” presentations to reach these audiences. Over the next several months, program participants identify their own speaking opportunities in various clubs and organizations (i.e., scouting groups, Boys’ and Girls’ Clubs, classes), and must make three or more presentations by February, 2016. Students are encouraged to be creative with their presentation.
At the end of February, written reports submitted by those students who have completed at least three “Moose Kids Talks” are judged by a peer group to determine who will represent the state at the annual Moose International Youth Awareness Congress, which is held during the last weekend of April. The 2018 Moose International Youth Awareness Congress will be held in Boston.
