The Washburn County Board of Supervisors welcomes 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 involvement on the County Board will require not only enthusiasm, but also a commitment of time and energy to this important role. Youth representatives will be expected to attend County Board meetings. Youth will have the opportunity to participate in committee meetings if interested.
