Connor's JrNYLC 2013

Dear Family and Friends:

I am a student at the Western Connecticut Academy of International Studies Elementary School and have been nominated to represent my school and community as a member of the Junior National Young Leaders Conference in Washington, D.C.

The Junior National Young Leaders Conference nominates exceptional students from around the country to attend an experiential educational program. I have enclosed a sample of our itinerary for your review. As you can see, this will be a powerful experience, enabling me to interact with many prominent men and women whom most of us only read about in the news.

Imagine if you had been given this opportunity for a life-changing experience when you were in school and were unable to participate for lack of funds. That is why I am writing to you today.

My participation in the Conference depends on whether I can raise $2,000 in sponsorships. (The Conference tuition is $2,000 plus travel expenses). I am investing every dollar I can of my own money to make sure I don't miss out on this unique experience.

I am hoping that you will consider assisting me with all or some of these costs. Your support for my sponsorship request would be greatly appreciated.

I have enclosed background materials on the Conference to answer your questions and help you make your decision.
