Youth in Government

Youth in Government

Want to know more? Join us for an information meeting on Tuesday, October 2nd at Lakeville North High School at 7 pm in the Lecture Hall (Room 248).

Interested in discussing important current issues and simulating state government? Then Youth in Government (YIG) is for you!  In YIG, students in grades 8-12 pick an area of interest and then assume the role of legislator, court of appeals lawyer, newspaper reporter, lobbyist, or other government position. Students prepare legislation, debate bills, write court briefs, or dozens of other things as they prepare for their particular role. The program culminates with 4 days of model assembly in January at the Minneapolis Hilton and St. Paul Capitol complex.  For more information, please contact the Lakeville Delegation Director, Christine Sell, at 763-238-0786 or
