Sen. Steve Erdman invites high school students from the Panhandle to participate in the Unicameral Youth Legislature. High school students are invited to take on the role of a state senator at the Unicameral’s Youth Legislature June 9-12. At the State Capitol in Lincoln, student senators will sponsor bills, conduct committee hearings, debate legislation, and discover the process of how a bill becomes a law in the nation’s only Unicameral Legislature.
The Unicameral Youth Legislature gives behind-the-scenes access to students who have an interest in debate, government, law, politics, public office, public policy, and public speaking. Students will learn about the inner workings of the Legislature directly from senators and staff.
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 other recreational activities as part of the Big Red Summer Camps program.
To learn more about the program or about how to apply, please call (402) 471-2788. The deadline for registration is May 15, 2019.
