The Washburn County Board of Supervisors invites youth in grades 9, 10, and 11 who are residents of Washburn County to apply to serve as youth representatives on the County Board. This initiative provides Washburn County youth an opportunity to play a valuable and active leadership role in the governance of the county while enhancing their interest in the operation of local government and civic participation.
Youth who are currently serving in these roles have found their experience to be very valuable and educational. County board supervisors have been very supportive of this initiative and recognize the value of having the voice of young people on the board.

Deadline for submitting application materials is March 31, 2017.
