CECLC Student Leaders

As part of the César E. Chávez Leadership Conference, every year outstanding student leaders are recognized to represent their school and area at the conference. These youth are role models for their peers and make a difference in the lives of the people they encounter within their school and community.

The Student Leaders will play an active role in the day-of the conference. To be prepared for their roles at the conference, the Student Leaders are required to attend a pre-conference retreat.

This year, the 2020 CECLC Pre-Conference Retreat will take place on:
Saturday, March 14, 12-4 p.m. at  Western Oregon University.

Note: Students Leaders are responsible for their own transportation. Please let the planning committee know if you need assistance. Efforts will be made to assist students with transportation and other needs to insure participation.


Selection Process:

  • Student Nomination Forms are distributed to participating area representatives in the CECLC planning committee.
  • Student Nomination Forms must be completed and returned to area representatives by January 10, 2020.
  • Each area will select one or two student leaders from their area for the award.
    • Note: Number of student leaders from each area is dependent on the number of participating students from that area.
  • The area representative will submit the name and nomination form of their student leader to the CECLC Planning Committee by late January.
  • The student leaders will be recognized and presented with their award at the César E. Chávez Leadership Conference.
    • Please note: The CECLC planning committee does not participate in the nomination or the selection of student leaders. That decision is made by the area representative and the area’s schools.

For more information or questions, please contact your area representative.


Congratulations to the 2019 CECLC Outstanding Student Leaders:
