Youth Leadership Conference (For Juniors) To Publications / Articles
January 17, 2018
Dear High School Administrator and Educator:
I am writing today to remind you of the upcoming deadline of January 31, 2018, for the Attorney General’s Youth Leadership Conference. We thank you in advance for your involvement in the nomination process.
Since taking office, Attorney General Doug Peterson has enjoyed engaging students in classrooms and assemblies across Nebraska. He has involved them in discussions ranging from our U.S. Constitution, rights, responsibilities, and critical issues facing students and their communities.
To expand upon this commitment in reaching and educating students, I am asking for your assistance in nominating students from your junior class for the 2018 Attorney General’s Youth Conference, which will be held at the Nebraska State Capitol on Tuesday, April 10, 2018. Nominated students should be interested in the process of government and law. Selected students will be invited to participate in discussion and debate of current issues, hear from AGO Bureaus Chiefs, and eat lunch at the Governor’s Residence.
You may nominate students by providing the attached application to students. Additional applications can be downloaded athttps://ago.nebraska.gov/youth-link. Student applications are due by January 31, 2018. Selected students will be notified by February 28, 2018.
Students will need to be chaperoned by a parent/educator for purposes of transportation to and from Lincoln. If space allows, some sessions will be open to the attending chaperone. Due to limited space, chaperones will be responsible for their own lunch.
Again, thank you for your time and involvement in the nomination process. We look forward to engaging Nebraska students in state government. If you have questions or suggestions, please contact me at (402) 471-9651 or [email protected].
