2018-19 OASC Capitol Ambassador Application
Over the last three years, CAP students visited the State Capitol, met with Governor Brown, spoke to the leadership of the Oregon Department of Education, interviewed legislators and lobbyists, built their resumes and LinkedIn profiles, and testified before the House Education Committee. This year, we have even bigger things planned. You should be a part of it.

We will select a group of around 40 students to be members of the fourth class of the OASC Capitol Ambassadors Program to represent their peers across the state. We are looking for high school students of all ages and from all over Oregon. This program is non-partisan and students of all belief systems are welcome.

Any student interested in public service, learning more about politics, and making a difference in their community should apply. We welcome applications from both new and returning students. Students are expected to attend all events unless they have made prior arrangements.

This application is due by 5:00pm on Friday, September 21st.

Your answer
As an OASC Capitol Ambassador, you will be representing yourself, your school, your community, and OASC. All ambassadors are expected to be respectful and responsible leaders in their schools. Selected students are obligated to maintain good grades, have excellent attendance records, and have no disciplinary issues. All students' social media accounts must be appropriate and contain no illegal or irresponsible activities. Any violation of these principles will result in removal from the program. *
