    U.S. Senate Youth Program

    The United States Senate Youth Program (USSYP), established in 1962 by U.S. Senate Resolution, is a unique educational experience for outstanding high school students. Each year, two student leaders from each state, the District of Columbia and the Department of Defense Education Activity spend a week in Washington, D.C., experiencing their national government in action.

    During Washington Week, students will attend briefings and meetings with several senators, the president of the United States, a justice of the Supreme Court, secretaries of the Cabinet, an ambassador to the United States, other federal agency leaders, and senior members of the national media. Each speaking event includes a substantial question-and-answer session, allowing the students direct and personal interaction with the high-level leadership. This in-depth exposure is what fuels and sustains the students’ commitment to making a difference in their country, communities and schools.

    In addition, each delegate will be awarded a $10,000 college scholarship. The Hearst Foundation provides all transportation, hotel and meal expenses.

    The Minnesota Department of Education (MDE) administers this program in Minnesota. Principals nominate students; one student per school will be considered. Interested? Students may complete the application on this page or check with their high school counselor to learn more about the program.

    Natural Resources Camp at SDSU

    The Natural Resources Camp is a great way to gain exposure to the world of natural resources, including fish, plants, wildlife, soils, invertebrates, and water. The camp offers opportunities to gain hands-on experiences in natural resource ecology and management. The camp is intended for high school students, entering grades 9, 10, 11, and 12, who have a strong desire to learn more about the natural world or who have an interest in pursuing a career related to natural resources. Permission of parent or guardian is required.

    Camp activities will be led by faculty and graduate students from the Department of Natural Resource Management from SDSU. We will also have biologists personnel from natural resource agencies.
