Congressional Youth Advisory Council Deadline Extended
Last year, I launched a Congressional Youth Advisory Council (CYAC) for motivated high school juniors and seniors. Through this council, I gained insight from civic-minded students around TX-11. This year, we'll be expanding on last year's successes by adding more students to CYAC.
The CYAC will meet three times within the school year and includes a roundtable discussion on current events and specific issues impacting our country, as well as learning the fundamental role of lawmakers, experts and citizens in our republic. These high-achieving students will also be asked to provide their views on current legislation working its way through Congress.
I'd encourage high school juniors and seniors interested in government to submit an application. To be considered, the completed application must be submitted to the Midland office no later than Friday, September 29, 2017. To learn more about the CYAC and download an application, please visit the website at this link.
Service Academy Nominations
One of my greatest honors as a U.S. Representative is nominating young men and women to our military service academies. Young men and women who are interested in attending a military service academy will need to submit their application for a nomination ahead of the October 18, 2016, deadline. To be considered for appointment to a service academy, the applicant must be a United States citizen who is a resident of the 11th District and at least 17-years-old but not older than 23 on July 1, 2018. Selection is based on SAT and ACT test scores, class rank, grade point average, extracurricular activities, and leadership potential.
The application can be found online here. All applications must be received at my San Angelo office by Oct. 18, 2017. If you have any questions, please contact JoAnne Powell at 325 659-4010.
As always, you can follow me on
Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter.
Rep. Mike Conaway, 11th District
