The Iowa Secretary of State’s Office is excited to announce registration for Capitol Project 2013 is now open for sophomores and juniors.  Capitol Project is a stepping-stone for future leaders – it allows students to experience government in action and provides lessons in goal setting, teamwork and leadership.

Students come to the Capitol for 4 days (Feb. 18-21) where they meet with statewide elected officials, legislators, pages and lobbyists.  They work in small groups with bill drafters and policy analysts as they imitate the legislative process from brain storming their legislative ideas to its passage or veto.

Cost is $125 – this includes lodging for 3 nights, meals, materials and activities.  Interested students must complete an application (available in Student Services) and return it no later than January 21, 2013.   For more information please contact Jen Fagan at jen.fagan@sos.iowa.gov.
