For the third consecutive year, the LWVS will select two high school students to send to the annual Students Inside Albany conference, to be held May 18-21. All Sophomore, Junior and Senior students who attend Scarsdale High School or who reside in the school district are eligible to apply.
Joan Frankle and Janet Korins, as part of the League's youth outreach program, are spearheading the effort. The cost of the conference, including hotel and meals, will be co-sponsored by the League of Women Voters of New York State Education Foundation, Inc. and our Scarsdale League.
Applications can found by visiting the Scarsdale LWV’s website (LWVS.org) and are due by February 7, 2014.
Students Inside Albany is an intensive four-day conference designed to immerse students in the process by which public policy is proposed, revised and enacted in New York State and to educate them as to how they can influence and affect this process. Last year’s Scarsdale students were unanimous in their enthusiasm about the program, which allowed them to interact with students from all over the state, learn about their state government and meet state legislators.
