61st Annual United States Senate Youth Program

The Idaho State Department of Education administers the United States Senate Youth Program, sponsored by the William Randolph Hearst Foundation. The program brings the highest-level officials from each branch of government together with an outstanding group of high school students – two high school juniors or seniors from each state – during an intensive week-long educational program held March 4-11, 2023 in Washington, D.C. In addition, each student receives a one-time $10,000 undergraduate college scholarship award. Information was mailed to every Idaho secondary school principal on August 15, 2022 describing the program, along with materials, timeline, and instructions. Deadline for completed student materials to be received by the SDE is October 14, 2022. The program guidelines are available at https://ussenateyouth.org.
