The 2020 Nebraska HOBY Leadership Seminar will be held from Friday, May 29 – Sunday, May 31, 2020 on the campus of Concordia University, in Seward, NE.

We are planning on having more than 160 OUTSTANDING ambassadors from high schools across Nebraska participating in the weekend. Ambassadors heard from dynamic speakers, community leaders and panlelists regarding topics such as personal leadership, group leadership, civic engagement, entrepreneurism, overcoming adversity and leading in your community.

The core HOBY curriculum focuses on these four main areas:

  1. Personal Leadership
  2. Group Leadership
  3. Leading in Society
  4. Leadership for Service


The selection process for HOBY varies by school.  Registration materials are sent to high schools throughout Nebraska in early September.  If you did not receive a copy, please download the registration kit hereAfter reviewing the registration information, you can register students online at  Schools generally will either have students complete an application, participate in an interview and/or write an essay.  In addition, some schools have outside community groups interview students to select the ambassadors.

Pre-Seminar materials (confirmation packet, FAQs, etc.) will be emailed to all registered ambassadors beginning on April 1, 2020. We ask that all required forms be returned to HOBY by May 15, 2020.

If you have any questions regarding the seminar, please email Katherine Cole, Nebraska HOBY Leadership Seminar Chairperson, at See you this summer!
