Some northern Saskatchewan high school students will get a chance to meet leaders from across the province this week.


The youth are taking part in this year’s rendition of the Lieutenant Governor’s Leadership Forum.


The event is intended to give kids who have already shown leadership abilities the chance to take part in a variety of experiences to strengthen their bodies and minds.


This week and next, they will travel to Saskatoon, Regina, Moose Jaw, La Ronge and Stanley Mission.


Lieutenant-Governor Gordon Barnhart says it should be a full couple of weeks, as the youth will meet roughly 50 leaders in government, industry and education.


Of the 19 students taking part in the event, eight hail from the province’s north.


They include Jaden Boucher and Colin King of La Loche, Stephen Clarke of Buffalo Narrows, Heather Gardiner-Roy of Beauval, Corrine Holiday-Scott of Meadow Lake, Deborah McLeod of Air Ronge, Breanne Senik of La Ronge and Black Lake’s Rick Robillard.


They will arrive in La Ronge on Oct. 21.
