|The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is looking for youth leaders who are dedicated to public service, who are making a difference in their communities, and who want to expand their impact as national advocates for youth disaster preparedness.
Youth can apply on their own, or they can be nominated by individuals who are familiar with their preparedness activities. Applicants/nominees must be between 12 and 17 years old. Applications can emphasize youth disaster preparedness activities that the applicant/nominee has participated in, or can be related to a disaster the applicant/nominee has experienced. Application narratives should describe a specific emergency situation and/or example of a disaster preparedness activity that would qualify the nominee to serve on the Council.
Nominations must be received by April 19, 2013, by 11:59 p.m. EDT.
