High school students are invited to take on the role of state senators at the Unicameral Youth Legislature June 12-15. At the State Capitol Building, s tudent 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.
"As the future senators and leaders of this state, it is important that our youth understand what goes into lawmaking and the kinds of issues they may face," said District 32 Senator Russ Karpisek, of Wilber. "I am confident they will learn a lot and have a good time while they're at it."
