Legislative Day 2018

Legislative Day 2018 at the Capitol: Celebrating Excellence will be held on Thursday, February 22, 2018. This will be the 19th year of providing this unique opportunity for students and adults to experience first hand how state government works. Due to the overwhelming success of past years, we will be limiting the number of participants this year.  Please submit your registrations/applications early so you don't miss out!

There are two major components to the day:
1.  The student's involvement whether it be shadowing a legislator or being part of a group, and
2.  The GT Advocacy Session for adults and students to learn particulars of current legislative issues.

This program is designed for 8th through 12th graders only who are ready to have an individualized experience with other students and adults. 

No two experiences are the same!

Please note: All adults who are staying for lunch must register for this event as well!
