Capitol Forum on America’s Future

NEW_State_Seal_Color_02Capitol Forum empowers high school students to get involved in the American democratic process and examine issues facing our country. Students actively participate in discussions and deliberations with their peers from across the state along with members of the Nebraska congressional delegation.

Sponsored by Humanities Nebraska in collaboration with Secretary of State John Gale, Capitol Forum is a multi-state initiative of the Choices for the 21st Century Education Program at Brown University. The Choices Curriculum serves as the primary resource for teachers and students involved in the Nebraska Capitol Forum.

For the 16th annual Nebraska Capitol Forum on America’s Future on March 24, 2014, high school teachers representing rural, urban, public and private schools across the state were chosen to engage their students in discussion of our nation’s future in a changing international environment. The students and their teachers visited  the State Capitol to report and deliberate on the concerns of their classmates and interact with members of Nebraska’s congressional delegation about global issues and foreign policy.  U.S. Congressmen Lee Terry and Adrian Smith participated by video conference, answering student questions and explaining the intricacies of foreign relations.
