Recruitment is underway for a youth advisory council to provide voice, insight and vision to North Dakota's energy and agricultural interests. Three of the state’s largest associations – The Lignite Energy Council, NDFB and the North Dakota Petroleum Council – are partnering on the project.
Interested North Dakota students – in grades 6-11 – are encouraged to sign up at www.NextGenND.com. The students’ commitment is for seven months (September through April.)
The deadline for signing up is June 30, 2018. Selection of 15 students across the state will occur in July and a survey will be sent to the participants in August to determine their interests, methods of meeting online or in person and to set up tours of farms, mines, power plants and refineries.
