HOBY Washington's Leadership Seminar is a life-changing experience designed for high school sophomores. We'd love for your students to attend our 2020 seminar in June at Whitworth University in Spokane, Washington. 

Register today by clicking this link. The HOBY International Guaraunteed Acceptance Deadline is December 6th, 2019. Register students before this date to ensure they have a space onsite in June. 

HOBY Washington puts on a four day leadership conference for high school sophomores that is packed with fun and innovative leadership activities. The purpose of the seminar is to prepare high school sophomores to become effective, innovative, and ethical leaders in their home, schools, and communities. Our seminar emphasizes volunteerism, innovative ideas, diversity, community partnerships, and lifelong learning. We want to teach our ambassadors how to think and not what to think. HOBY Ambassadors are selected from public and private high schools in Washington state so please keep an eye out for any outstanding sophomores you know in your school. Last year, nearly 100 sophomores from across the state participated in the Washington HOBY seminar.
