Applications for 2019 U.S. Senate Youth Program available

2019 United States Senate Youth Program materials are ready for distribution by the Kentucky Department of Education.

High school juniors and seniors are eligible if they have not previously been a delegate to the program and are serving in a school-wide, district, regional or state elected capacity in a student government, civic or educational organization. Students should have above average grades and an interest in government. They should also be articulate, as they will be participating in discussion groups with national leaders in Washington. The program offers two student leaders from each state a $10,000 college scholarship and an all expenses- paid trip to Washington, D.C., to see the U.S. Senate in action. It is funded by the William Randolph Hearst Foundation.

Counselors who have students interested in the program should request an application and a timed test from KDE. Schools can make copies of the test, but students should not see it before they take it. Students, teachers and the school official who administers the test should not discuss answers.

Please contact Donna Melton for an application.

Applications and tests must be postmarked by Oct. 15 and mailed to:
