What is Capitol Forum?

Sponsored by Humanities Nebraska in collaboration with Secretary of State Bob Evnen, Capitol Forum is an initiative of the The Choices Program at Brown University. The Choices Curriculum serves as the primary resource for teachers and students involved in the Nebraska Capitol Forum.

For the 26th annual Nebraska Capitol Forum on America’s Future during the 2023/2024 school year, high school teachers representing rural, urban, public and private schools across the state will engage their students in discussion of our nation’s future in a changing international environment. Each school will send a delegation of students and teachers to 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.
