Students collaborate at Capitol Forum

Students from all across Nebraska trekked to the capitol on Monday for the annual Capitol Forum on America's Future.  About 100 students from 27 high schools attended.

Lincoln Pius X senior Austin Safranek was selected to attend.  “They select four students to come down and collaborate with other students from across the state.”

Capitol Forum gives high school students a voice in public policy.  They take what they've learned in the classroom and work with other students to come up with recommendations for future U.S. foreign policy.

Students also participated in a Q&A with Congressmen Jeff Fortenberry and Lee Terry.  Safranek says it was a great opportunity to share political opinions.  “It was rewarding to meet new people and also to collaborate with them effectively.”
