BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Applications are being accepted from
high school students interested in the Louisiana Legislature's
Youth Advisory Council.
The 21-member council is a group of students appointed each year
that looks at issues affecting young people around Louisiana. State
lawmakers created the council in 2007. The next group will begin
its work in June.
Two members are selected from each of the seven congressional
districts and another seven students are chosen to represent a
school-sponsored or community service club that has a civic
mission. Members must be between the ages of 14 and 19.
The deadline for applications is March 15. The application is
available online at http://civiced.louisiana.gov.
