Meadows Senior Selected for US Senate Youth Program

The Meadows School Campus
Meadows senior Jared Stone has been selected as one of only two students to represent the state of Nevada as a delegate to the United States Senate Youth Program (USSYP) to be held in Washington, D.C. March 7 – 14, 2020.

The USSYP was founded in 1962 through Senate Resolution and each year two of the highest-achieving students from each state, the District of Columbia, and the Department of Defense Education system overseas are selected through an extremely competitive merit-based selection process held at the state departments of education nationwide.

Participants will spend a week in Washington experiencing their national government in action. Student delegates will hear major policy addresses by senators, cabinet members, officials from the Departments of State and Defense and directors of other federal agencies, as well as participate in meetings with the president and a justice of the U.S. Supreme Court.

Jared will also receive a $10,000 college scholarship for undergraduate studies, with encouragement to pursue coursework in history and political science.
