For the 11th consecutive year, the League of Women Voters of Scarsdale will select two high school students to attend the annual Students Inside Albany Conference to take place from May 22nd to May 25th, 2022. Any Sophomore, Junior or Senior student who attends Scarsdale High School or who resides in the school district is eligible to apply.
This year, Students Inside Albany will be an in-person event designed to immerse students in the process by which public policy is proposed, revised and enacted in New York State. Similar to past years, the agenda will be packed with tools to instruct students on how to influence public policy decision-making at the state level. Similarly, the highlight of the in-person program of meeting with legislators will continue to allow discussions with state legislators on issues and advocacy.
Scarsdale students who attended this program in the past were unanimous in their enthusiasm about the program.
The cost of the conference, including hotel and meals, will be co-sponsored by the League of Women Voters New York State Education Foundation, Inc. and the Scarsdale League.
Applications and more information are available on the LWVS’s website under the Youth Programs tab and are due by February 4, 2022.
