The League of Women Voters of Scarsdale seeks students who attend the Scarsdale High School or reside in the school district to attend a statewide conference in Albany. The 13th annual Students Inside Albany conference will be held on April 14-17. Sponsored by the LWV of New York State Education Foundation, this interactive conference is designed to increase students’ awareness of their responsibilities in a representative government and to provide the tools necessary for meeting that responsibility.
The conference will bring together high school students from across the state to learn about New York State government and the process by which citizens can participate in the policy-making arena. Students will also tour the Capitol and observe both the Senate and Assembly in action by spending an afternoon shadowing their legislators.
High school sophomores, juniors and seniors are invited to apply. Two students will be selected, and all expenses for the conference (including travel and hotel) will be covered by the LWV of New York State and the Scarsdale LWV. The participants will receive a student membership in the LWV of Westchester, which includes an e-mail newsletter and invitations to meetings on government related topics.
For an application or more information, contact Joan Frankle, Scarsdale LWV (914-713-1250 or firstname.lastname@example.org). Application forms are also available at the Scarsdale LWV’s website (LWVS.org) and must be mailed to PO Box 495, Scarsdale, 10583 and be received by January 14.
