NV Youth Legislative Issues Forum

Greetings all,

A new program has been started called the Nevada Youth Legislative Issues Forum.
This forum is designed to allow our youth to participate in current political
issues, and to gain an understanding of our government by being an active part
in it!

Senator Valerie Wiener, who helped create this forum, is not only an advocate
for youth, but also for homeschooling. The application process is open to
homeschoolers. Applicants must be in the incoming 9th-12 grade. There will be
21 youth chosen. For more information concerning the Forum please visit the
Forum’s webpage located on the Legislature’s website (www.leg.state.nv.us) and
review the attached documents!

Attached are electronic copies of: (1) the cover letter from Senator Wiener to
homeschool educators; (2) S.B. 247 which created the Forum; and (3) the
application for the Forum.
If you have any questions about the application process, please contact the
Constituent Services Unit of the Legislative Counsel Bureau at (775) 687-8620
or at www.leg.state.nv.us/lcb/research/CSU/feedbackmail.cfm.

This is a great opportunity to be active in civics and to make a mark in future
legislative sessions. Thanks to Senator Wiener for making this possible for us!
