What is RYLA?

Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) is a leadership training program sponsored by Rotary International that promotes, encourages and rewards outstanding young people who want to become better leaders. RYLA participants can be ages 14-30, but Great Plains RYLA focuses on youth who are high school sophomores and juniors.

RYLA consists of an all-expense paid five-day conference that brings together a special group of young men and women from Central and Western Nebraska to share ideas about becoming better leaders. Action-packed activities, like problem solving games, challenge course, group discussions and teambuilding activities, help participants build confidence and leadership skills.

RYLA emphasizes leadership, citizenship, and personal growth, and aims to:

  • Demonstrate Rotary’s respect and concern for youth.
  • Provide an effective training experience for selected youth and potential leaders.
  • Encourage leadership of youth by youth.
  • Publicly recognize young people who are rendering service to their communities.

Enjoy a Beautiful run by the Lake Ogallala, don’t miss the great opportunity to help the Rotary Club of Ogallala to raise money to eradicate Polio.

Most of the proceeds will go towards Polio Plus and the remaining will go toward local projects.

Polio Plus: Polio is a crippling and potential fatal infectious disease that still strikes children mainly under age 5 in Asia, Africa and the Middle East. It can paralyze and sometimes cause death. There is not a cure for Polio but it can be prevented with vaccine. Rotary International’s Polio Plus goal is to help eradicate Polio worldwide. The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation has given $355 million to Rotary towards Polio Plus, of which Rotary will match $200 million thereby giving a total of $555 million toward Polio eradication.
