I am raising money to attend the HOBY World Leadership Congress. This is an opportunity of a life time! Thank you for your support!

My name is Megan; I go to Elk Grove High School. I have been president of my class for the past two years and am going on my third year. Last year, my leadership teacher, Mr. Newton, invited me to attend the Hugh O'Brian Youth (HOBY) leadership seminar which I attended last weekend at St. Mary’s College. HOBY is a leadership conference for not only students involved in high school leadership classes but also for student leaders in their communities.

I wish I had the time to explain all the things I learned, the people I met and the opportunities that were presented to me . This experience changed my life; HOBY motivated us to become even more active in ours schools and communities and encouraged us to jump on opportunities when we see them available, and that is why I am addressing you today.

At the end of the HOBY NorCal seminar, I was chosen among a group of 40 students to have the opportunity to attend the HOBY International World Leadership Congress (WLC) program on July 21 at Loyola University in Chicago. WLC is a weeklong conference which expands on the leadership themes presented at the local seminar. This conference is limited to 400 students from around the world.

The cost to attend is about $2000 (including airfare).I have already raised $547 from recycling! The conference is from the 22-28 of July. I currently am trying to raise enough money to attend by collecting recycling from neighbors and friends, having a pizza fundraiser and contacting businesses for donations. I would be grateful for ANY contribution you would be willing to make to help make this dream come true. Also, please share any fundraising ideas that you think might help me!

Thank you oh so much!


Megan :)
