MADISON, WI – I am excited to announce that applications are now open for the 2018 Senate Scholar program. The Senate Scholar Program is a week-long educational program offered by the Wisconsin State Senate that provides high school students with a hands-on, up-close view of the Wisconsin Legislature’s role in our democracy. Senate Scholars gain experience in such diverse areas as policy development, constituent relations, and processing legislation by working with senators, legislative staff and University of Wisconsin faculty.

calab-frostmanI am proud of the quality education provided by the parents, teachers, and administrators in schools all across the 1st Senate District. I know there are many young people in Northeast Wisconsin who care deeply, want to become leaders, and make a difference in their communities. This program is a great way for students to see how our government functions and gain valuable hands-on experience toward becoming the leaders of the future.

Information about this program can be found online at www.senatescholar.com or by calling (608)261-0533. All applications for the 2018 Senate Scholar program are due by November 21, 2018. Students can apply at any time and have their application considered for future programs if they aren’t immediately accepted. While this is a highly competitive program, each Senate district is allotted a minimum number of participants.

*****

District 1 includes parts of Brown, Door, and Kewaunee County, Wisconsin.
