The 18th Congressional District’s Student Advisory Board was founded in 1993 as a way to give young people a voice in our government.
The Student Advisory Board is made up of high school students who live or attend high school in the 18th Congressional District. Past Student Advisory Boards have researched topics and polled students on issues important to young people and made recommendations on legislation being considered in Congress. Their most recent reports have covered important topics such as alternative energy, the economy, human rights, and the Innovation Agenda.
Candidates must be of Junior or Senior standing in high school and are responsible, creative, enthusiastic, and dedicated. Candidates are required to attend meetings twice a month.
We are no longer accepting applications for the 2016-2017 Student Advisory Board. To participate next year, check back here in September 2017 for next year’s application.
