Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA)  April 19-21, 2018
RYLA is a leadership program coordinated by Rotary Clubs and Districts around the globe.  Each year thousands of young people between the ages 13–30 are sponsored by Rotary Clubs to participate in RYLA programs around the world.  
Rotary District 6820 looks each year for high school juniors and senior who are outstanding school and/or community leaders with a strong service background to apply for RYLA. If selected to participate in RYLA, students will have the opportunity to discuss leadership, service and career opportunities and to exchange ideas about current ethical and social issues with knowledgeable District 6820 Rotarians who are local and regional leaders.
This year, RYLA will be held at Twin Lakes Conference Center in Florence, MS beginning the evening of April 19th and concluding the morning of April 21st.
