A conference in Oklahoma this summer will bring together students from across the nation to discuss leadership and other issues, and the United Tribes of Bristol Bay is recruiting students from the region to attend.

UTBB Education and Outreach coordinator Heidi Kritz said the event will include keynote speakers, leadership workshops, and a career and education expo.

“This is a great opportunity for Bristol Bay youth in grades 10-12 to build leadership skills, learn about culture preservation, environmental awareness, healthy lifestyles and community service,” she said.
