The junior year of a HOBY ambassador is a very special year. We challenge each student to take what they have learned from the state seminar and demonstrate it in word and deed to their community.

Your junior year is your HOBY Leadership Year. You can make a difference, and you must! The world needs you.

HOBY Utah is honored to commemorate that very catalystic power that is within each one of you. We need your help to fully recognize your achievements during this year. You’ve made a difference in other people’s lives and now is the chance to do the same in yours. That is the whole point of this program: Making life better.

We have very generous universities and colleges throughout the great state of Utah. They are looking for quality students and actively engaged leaders like HOBY alum. That is why they offer you this great opportunity to study at their institutions.

We ask that ALL HOBY Ambassadors submit one of the following two reports about your junior year activities.

HOBY Ambassadors have TWO CHOICES:

A. Notebook Report, has a greater chance for scholarships (submit by mail)
B. Summary Report, has a chance for scholarships (submit by email or mail)

Submission Date: post marked before July 1, as you complete your junior year.

Send your reports to:

Laura O’Connor
Scholarship Coordinator
3979 E. Yakima Way
Eagle Mountain, UT 84005

As a HOBY Ambassador, you will be our guest for the event. Family members or friends who wish to attend will be $30 each. We will need to know in advance how many of you are attending by submitting your check for each person, made out to “HOBY Utah.” This will be due by July 1 each year.

Even if you feel that you may not have completed some major service activities, we encourage you to submit your report and be our HOBY Ambassador guest with your family and friends and all other HOBY ambassadors. Plan to join us for YOUR “OUTSTANDING” Awards Dinner.
