Sioux Falls Rising Leaders was started by the 2018-2019 Leadership Sioux Falls class. The goal was to create a one-day event based on the principles of the Chamber of Commerce’s Evan C. Nolte Leadership Sioux Falls program, which is designed to meet the community´s need for active participation of informed and dedicated community leaders. 

We wanted to start fostering that participation in leaders of a younger age.  

Sioux Falls Rising Leaders allows high school sophomores, juniors and seniors to connect with city, community and business leaders. Students selected for the program will have a chance to learn, ask questions and, hopefully, will leave with a better appreciation for the Sioux Falls community and those who make it run.  

You might be an artist who would like to introduce yourself and your work here or maybe you’re a business with a mission to describe.
