Do you know any outstanding, amazing and wonderful high school juniors???


Are they an excellent candidate for Youth Leadership Oklahoma (YLOK)? YLOK was created in 2001 with the mission to develop a hope, pride and responsibility for Oklahoma’s future. This is an outstanding leadership opportunity for students who have demonstrated a unique ability to lead others while making a significant impact upon their school and community. The top 50 applicants will be selected based on proven leadership in their schools and communities, geographic, ethnic and cultural diversity.


The selection committee looks for students who represent our state’s best young leaders — those who have demonstrated leadership ability in activities such as student council, athletics, community involvement and service clubs.  Keep in mind that with approximately 50 class members chosen throughout the state, selection will be difficult.  Every effort will be made to select a balance of representatives from across Oklahoma.


The application can be downloaded from the website at  Applications are also available from your school counselor.
