Borough to Send Two AEBSD High School Students to AYFS in Juneau

The Aleutians East Borough would like to send two AEBSD high school students to the Alaska Young Fishermen's Summit (AYFS) in Juneau on February 13th and 14th. Acceptance for AEB-funded travel will be competitive, based on scholastic achievement (grades), prior involvement in the fishing industry and a one-page letter of interest to attend the Summit from the student.

As part of the AEB-funded trip to the AYFS, the Borough will provide round trip travel for two studnets from the home Borough community to Juneau, overnight lodging and appropriate school district approved chaperones for the trip, including overnight in Anchorage.

AEB Consultant and Former Speaker of the Alaska State House Sam Cotten is the key-note speaker for the event. He will meet with the AEB students during their stay.

Interested students should submit a letter of interest, including a summary of fishing industry experience to the Borough Clerk/Planner, Tina Anderson, by Thursday, January 19, 2012. Letters of interest should be submitted either in person, by fax to (907) 383-3496 or by email to
