North Carolina's 2019 U.S. Senate Youth Winners
This year Darren Janz and Elizabeth Greer will represent North Carolina as the state's U.S. Senate Youth delegates in Washington, D.C. during the week-long annual Washington Week education activity and experience, March 2-9, 2019.
Each of the two delegates will be awarded a $10,000 undergraduate college Scholarship with encouragement to pursue coursework in history and political science. In the event one of the delegates is unable to attend the entire week in Washington, D.C. the first or second alternate will be asked to attend and will receive the scholarship.
Since its creation by the U.S. Senate in 1962, the U.S. Senate Youth Program has been and continues to be a national non-partisan initiative to provide an opportunity for talented high school students with demonstrated leadership abilities to deepen their understanding of American government and its processes, and to strengthen their resolve to pursue careers in public service. The U.S. Senate Youth Program is merit-based with a mandatory service component and is highly competitive.
Qualified junior or senior high school students applying for this opportunity must show demonstrated leadership through public service in elected or appointed positions where they are actively representing a constituency in organizations that relate to government, public affairs, history and / or community service. Students applying must be actively serving in qualified leadership positions, enrolled in high school and living in the state they will represent for the entire academic year of the year they apply.
Congratulations to this year's delegates and alternates!
