Two New Mexico students will be selected as delegates to the 53rd annual Washington Week program. They will join 102 student delegates from around the country on an all ex- penses paid trip to Washington, D.C., from March 7 - 14, 2015, for an intensive educational pro- gram about the workings of the U.S. Senate and federal govern- ment. Additionally, each selected part. icipant will receive a $5,000 college scholarship. The USSYP was established by the U.S. Senate in 1962 to help increase young Americans' under- standing of the relationships be- tween the three branches of gov- ernment, the duties of federally elected and appointed officials, and the importance and impact of democratic decision-making in the U.S. and throughout the world. The program is sponsored by the U.S. Senate, and fully funded by the Hearst Founda- tions. Students selected to partici- pate in the program will visit Capi- tol Hill, the White House, the Pentagon, the State Department, and the Supreme Court. The agenda frequently includes meet- ings with senators, the president, cabinet secretaries, a U.S. Su- preme Court justice, senior mem- bers of the national media and other policy makers. "The United States Senate Youth Program provides an out- standing opportunity for excep- tional New Mexico students to delve into the heart of America's political processes," Udall said. "I encourage New Mexico stu- dent leaders interested in learn- ing more about the federal gov- ernment and public service to apply."

"The United States Senate Youth Program not only provides delegates with the chance to represent our state in our nation's capital, but it also helps instill a lifelong commit- ment to public service and pro- vides them with a college schol- arship to help with tuition costs. I will continue to support these types of educational opportuni- ties that expand student engage- ment and leadership and lead to a brighter future for New Mexico." Delegate selection is admin- istered by the New Mexico Pub- lic Education Department in co- ordination with high school prin- cipals. Delegates must be juniors or seniors for the 2014-15 school year, must serve as elected school officers for the 2014-15 school year, and must reside and attend school in New Mexico. Selected students typically demonstrate outstanding leadership abilities and a commitment to public ser- vice, and generally rank academi- cally within the top 1 percent of students from their state. Applications from New Mexico students are due by Oc- tober 10, 2014, and the names of selected students will be formally announced mid-December. The 2015 brochure with fur- ther information and detailed rules about the selection process may be viewed at The application for New Mexico students is available at 14.html.
