Future Leaders in Planning application deadline is September 22

Announcement from the Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning (CMAP)
Every year, the Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning offers a high school leadership development program called Future Leaders in Planning (FLIP).  The program is for students interested in learning about regional planning needs and what can be done to solve them. The deadline for applications is next Monday, September 22. 

Program description and link to application are as follows:

Future Leaders in Planning (FLIP) is CMAP's leadership development program for high school students in northeastern Illinois. At no cost to themselves, teens across the region will become involved in the issues that shape our region and share thoughts with other teens from Cook, DuPage, Kane, Kendall, Lake, McHenry, and Will counties. Through multimedia tools, interactive activities, and field trips, students will go "behind the scenes" to explore our region's communities. Participants will also meet and interact with selected regional leaders who make key planning decisions in our communities.

Please share the 2014-15 FLIP application (
http://cmap.is/FLIP_app) with local high school students who would like to learn about planning and contribute to a better future for our region.
Applications must be postmarked or emailed by Monday, September 22, 2014.
