High school students from the United States Senate Youth Program talked about their participation in a week-long government and leadership education program in Washington, D.C. One hundred four students were selected from 50 states, the District of Columbia and the Department of Defense Education Activity. While in Washington, delegates met and asked questions of President Barack Obama, Supreme Court Associate Justice Elena Kagan, Secretary of State John Kerry, Senator Richard Burr (R-NC) and NASA Administrator Charles Bolden, to name a few. Students spoke about meeting those government officials, and shared some of the insights they gained from their presentations. Topics included the lack of bipartisanship in Washington, challenges facing the younger generation and the rigorous selection process for choosing delegates in the program. close
