Applications are being accepted for the 2013-2014 class of the Uinta County Leadership Institute.

The deadline is 5 p.m. Friday, Aug. 16, said Kimberly Chapman, UW Extension community development educator. Applications can be submitted to the Uinta County Leadership Institute Sponsor Headquarters within the Uinta County extension office in Evanston.

The nine-month program meets the second Wednesday each month from September to May, and classes focus on community issues, resources and diversity, she said.

Participants complete additional community-based experiences to supplement the course; members engage in activities with local groups that represent education, government, healthcare and non-profit organizations. More information is at http://bit.ly/uintaleaders.

The program seeks to enhance leadership skills in Uinta County residents, assess leadership styles and discuss conflict resolution techniques, said Chapman.

Application forms and additional information are available at the UW Extension office in Evanston. The class is limited to 25, and tuition is $299. Attendance is required at the first session Wednesday, Sept. 11.
