(Neb.)-Students Sought For 2013 Nebraska 'Student Legislature'

By: Dennis and Kathi Brown Posted at: 05/05/2013 07:43 AM

LINCOLN, Nebraska (AP) - High school students with an interest in law, government, or public speaking are invited to register for Nebraska's 2013 Unicameral Youth Legislature. 

The four-day legislative simulation will run from June 9-12 at the Capitol. Student senators will have the chance to sponsor bills, conduct committee hearings, debate legislation and learn about the inner workings of the nation's only one-house Legislature. 

Students will hear directly from state senators, staff members and lobbyists. 

Registration forms are available on the Legislature's Unicameral Youth Legislature page and the University of Nebraska Lincoln's "Big Red Summer Academic Camps" website. 

The registration deadline is May 15. Scholarships may be available.

The event is coordinated by the clerk's office of the Nebraska Legislature.
