Public Lands Council offers student scholarships to legislative conference
The Wyoming Public Lands Coalition is offering to Wyoming high school and college students the opportunity to attend the Public Lands Council Spring Legislative Conference in Washington, DC, April 15 to 16.
The Public Lands Council is the national organization representing ranchers in Washington, DC. Since 1968, PLC has worked with Congress and the federal land management agencies to maintain a stable business environment in which livestock producers can conserve the West and feed the nation and world.
In an effort to get more young people involved with PLC issues and provide them with an unforgettable learning experience, recipients will meet members of Congress and their staff; attend meetings with agency officials; and hear from the leading experts and influencers in the industry. Scholars will be able to actively participate in PLC's efforts to promote and support public lands grazing at our Nation's Capital.
Applicants must be a student of the University of Wyoming, a Wyoming Community College, or a Wyoming high school senior. Priority will be given to students demonstrating an interest or career path in fostering agricultural use of public lands. PLC will provide for lodging and registration fees. The Wyoming Public Lands Council will sponsor travel expenses.
