Blue Ridge Student Challenge Award

The Blue Ridge Student Challenge Award is awarded to the top three participants in the Foundations in Leadership Certificate Program for College Students.

In an effort to enhance the educational experience for college students, the Blue Ridge Conference on Leadership offers undergraduate and graduate college students an opportunity to earn a separate certificate in foundational leadership skills. 

The certificate program requirements include a four hour workshop, attendance at the Blue Ridge Conference, completion of a leadership journal, and a leadership philosophy paper.  Click the following to download more detailed information:

The leadership philosophy paper also serves as an entry into the Blue Ridge Student Challenge Award Contest.  The paper (no more than 5 pages in length) should define how attendance and active participation in the Leadership Workshop and The Blue Ridge Conference On Leadership have helped the student define their personal leadership vision, clarify their governing values, and the effect it has had on them. 

Award Recipients will be recognized at the next year’s conference and receive cash awards as follows:

 

First Prize                  $1000

Second Prize             $  500

Third Prize                 $  250
