This program brings two high school juniors and/or seniors from each state to Washington, D.C. for one week to observe the federal government in action. The 104 student delegates are immersed in Washington activities throughout their week’s stay. Visits to the Senate, House of Representatives, the Supreme Court and the Pentagon are interspersed with visits to various Smithsonian museums. Delegates hear major policy addresses by senators, cabinet members, officials of the Departments of State and Defense and others.
The William Randolph Hearst Foundation will make available to each of the 104 delegates selected to participate in the program a $5,000 scholarship award. Additional information concerning the scholarships will be given to the delegates upon their arrival in Washington.
