Model Student Government
Anne Arundel County Executive Laura Neuman Invites Students
to Participate in the Student Model Government Program
Deadline to apply is January 29
Annapolis, Maryland (January 7, 2014) – County Executive Laura Neuman invites all 10th and 11th grade students to compete for the chance to be County Executive, Councilperson or Department Head for a day.
Anne Arundel County students may now apply to participate in the annual Student Model Government Program.
Applications and essays are due by January 29. Students selected will also participate in a mock County Council hearing that will take place on March 17, 2014.
"The Student Model Government Program offers our students a first-hand opportunity to see how their government works and the many issues and decisions that are dealt with on a daily basis," County Executive Neuman said.
"Students participating in this program will hopefully get a better appreciation for the hard work and dedication of our County’s employees and perhaps become motivated to serve their communities as a future civic leader."
Entrants are required to submit a short essay describing what they hope to accomplish if given the chance to serve as a public service official.
More than 30 students will be selected to participate in the Model Government.
Applications and instructions are available from Ashley Ricker, 410-222-1241 in the Office of Community and Constituent Services.
