This event is open to high school students (at least 14 years old) and adult participant-chaperones.
Join with 100 other high school youth for the annual four-day Capitol Experience pre-college program to learn how state governments work. You will choose a current policy to examine from several points of view, meet with lobbyists and advocates, and learn how government agencies deal with the issue at the state level. You will also be matched with a mentor in your area of interest to learn more about government processes and related positions. You will visit with your state senators and representatives, participate in simulations and activities designed to reinforce and apply what you have learned about government, and share what you’ve learned with others.
Cost: $310 for current 4-H members; $320 for those not in 4-H>
Registration Deadline: February 14 to county MSU Extension Offices; applications are then forwarded to the State 4-H office.
