The City of Ottumwa is forming an Ottumwa Youth Council and invites area students who will be in grades 9-12 for the 2023-2024 school year to apply.
Students need only to live in Ottumwa. They can attend any school district and be public, private, or homeschooled. The aim is to represent the diversity, experiences, and perspectives of area youth in their desires to be heard, make change, and improve the community. Applications are due January 12, 2024, and can be found at https://forms.gle/p7K1wTonUR9Yf8QZ6. Contact Councilmember Cara Galloway at 641-277-9064 or [email protected] with any questions.
