The District of Elkford will be choosing their two youth representatives this week. The District advertised for two Youth Representatives on Council: Senior (from grade 11 or 12) and Junior (from grade 9 or 10). The District recognizes the benefit of supporting communication channels between Council and Elkford youth and will advertise the availability of these two volunteer positions annually.
The District has been running this program for close to ten years. There are four applicants for the senior position meaning the Council will have to make a tough choice. Last year was the first year Council offered the position for the Junior representative. Council will announce the Youth representatives once the applicants have been notified.
