57th Annual United States Senate Youth Program Florida Application - Due by Midnight on October 19, 2018
The United States Senate Youth Program, established in 1962 by U.S. Senate Resolution, is a unique educational experience for outstanding high school students interested in pursuing careers in public service. The 57th annual program will be held in Washington, D.C., from March 2 – 9, 2019.

Qualified junior or senior high school students must show demonstrated leadership through public service in elected or appointed positions in school or civic organizations that relate to government, public affairs, history, and/or community service. They must be actively serving in qualified leadership positions for the entire 2018-2019 academic year.

Two student leaders from each state, the District of Columbia and the Department of Defense Education Activity will spend a week in Washington experiencing their national government in action. Student delegates will hear major policy addresses by Senators, cabinet members, officials from the Departments of State and Defense, and directors of other federal agencies, as well as participate in a meeting with a Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court. All transportation, hotel and meal expenses will be provided by The Hearst Foundations. In addition, each delegate will also be awarded a $10,000 College Scholarship for undergraduate studies, with encouragement to pursue coursework in history and political science.

Selection will be based on the student’s outstanding abilities and demonstrated qualities of leadership in an elected or appointed high school student office or state/community civic organization for the entire 2018-2019 school year. A student who graduates high school at the close of the fall 2018 semester/quarter is not eligible to apply for the program, and students other than DoDEA delegates must be residing in the U.S. during the 2019 spring semester to participate.

Any high school junior or senior, who has not previously been a delegate to Washington Week or received a USSYP scholarship, is eligible to apply provided they are currently serving, for the entire 2018-2019 academic year, in an elected or appointed capacity in any one of the following student government, civic, or educational organizations:

Student body president, vice president, secretary or treasurer
Class president, vice president, secretary or treasurer

A National Honor Society officer (including discipline-based Honor Societies such as the National English and Social Studies Honor Societies that include service components)
