  • Sophomores, Juniors & Seniors:  The Iowa Communications Network (ICN) is sponsoring an opportunity for students with powerful voices to share their perspectives on technology and broadband. The Statewide Youth Broadband Advisory Council (SYBAC) complements state efforts to gain input from various stakeholders that are passionate about broadband, technology, and apps that require robust broadband to provide the required high-speed Internet. The SYBAC will be made up of twelve (12) young leaders from across Iowa.

    The council’s goal is to gather useful information on what high school students feel could impact high-speed Internet in their schools and in their communities. Students will identify effective strategies to improve broadband connectivity and community environments, which could assist in advocacy efforts for rural Internet connectivity.

    Ric Lumbard, ICN Executive Director says, “This initiative allows high school students to help steer the broadband and technology conversations. Our goal is to hear from the next generation.”

    Students enrolled in 10th – 12th grades from public and nonpublic schools in Iowa may apply for membership. Meetings will take place monthly, beginning in October 2015 through May 2016, via video conference, teleconference, and/or in-person. Council members also will communicate via e-mail.

    ICN is the executive agency sponsor with support from Iowa Department of Education and Iowa Economic Development Authority.

    Students interested should visit ICN’s website at or the Broadband Matters’ website at Applications can be submitted between August 24 – September 14.  Any student interested should see Mr. Nienhaus.
