Sen. John Arch invites students to youth legislature

High school students are invited to take on the role of state senators at the Unicameral Youth
Legislature June 7-10. At the State Capitol, student senators will sponsor bills, conduct
committee hearings, debate legislation and discover the unique process of the nation’s only
unicameral.

The Unicameral Youth Legislature gives behind-the-scenes access to students who have an
interest in public office, government, politics, law, public policy, debate or public speaking.
Students will learn about the inner workings of the Legislature directly from senators and staff.

“This is an excellent opportunity to learn about our democratic system of government in Nebraska,” according to Senator John Arch. “By taking part in this program, students can
experience the challenges and opportunities granted to our elected officials.”

Registrants are encouraged to apply for a Greg Adams Civic Scholarship award, which covers
the full cost of admission. Applicants must submit a short essay. Other $100 scholarships are
also available.

The Office of the Clerk of the Nebraska Legislature coordinates the Unicameral Youth
Legislature. The University of Nebraska–Lincoln’s Extension 4-H Youth Development Office
coordinates housing and recreational activities as part of the Big Red Summer Camps program.

To learn more about the program, go to www.NebraskaLegislature.gov/uyl or call (402) 471-
2788. The deadline for registration is May 15.
