Senate Scholar Program Applications Available
The Senate Scholar Program provides students with an introduction to many facets of state government and the legislative process. During the intensive week-long program, students have an opportunity to meet with legislators and staff, legislative support agencies, governor’s staff, a Supreme Court Justice, the media and lobbyists. Students also assist the Senate Sergeant’s staff during session days and conclude the week by drafting a bill and holding a mock hearing.
I encourage any high school junior or senior to apply to this rigorous behind-the-scenes experience of state government. If you are interested, please contact my office by calling (800) 862-1092 or (608) 266-7745 or emailing Sen.Harsdorf@legis.wi.gov. In addition, more details and a link to the application are also found at: www.senatescholar.com. The application deadline is April 1.
