WASHINGTON -- The U.S. Senate Youth Program (USSYP) has begun its statewide selection process. The two selected Texas students will join 102 other delegates March 8-15, 2014, for the program’s 52nd annual Washington Week. The selected students will receive a $5,000 undergraduate college scholarship, in addition to the all-expenses-paid trip to the nation’s capital.

The Texas selection deadline is Tuesday, Oct. 15. Names of students selected will be formally announced mid-December. Interested Texas students should contact their high school principal or the state-level selection administrator:

Sara Grunberger

Program Manager, Federal and State Education Policy

1701 Congress Ave.

Austin, TX 78701-1494

Ph. (512) 463-8254

The USSYP was created by Senate Resolution 324 in 1962 as stated in supporting Senate testimony from that year, “to increase young Americans’ understanding of the interrelationship of the three branches of government, the caliber and responsibilities of federally elected and appointed officials, and the vital importance of democratic decision making not only for America but for people around the world.”

In addition to outstanding leadership abilities and a strong commitment to public service, the students generally rank academically in the top one percent of their states. They continue to excel and develop impressive qualities that are often directed toward public service. Among the many distinguished former program delegates are New Jersey Governor Christopher Christie; former Chief Judge Robert Henry, U.S. Court of Appeals; and former Ambassador to West Germany Richard Burt.

The student delegates will visit Capitol Hill, the White House, the Pentagon, the State Department, the Supreme Court, and other historic sites in Washington. They will meet with senators, Cabinet officers, government leaders, and other policy-makers.

Each student must be a permanent resident of the United States and currently enrolled in a public or private secondary school located in the state (including for these purposes the District of Columbia) in which either one of his or her parents or guardians legally resides. Exceptions to the residency rule are made for the Department of Defense Education Activity and for states with schools under Interstate Compacts.

The 2014 program brochure with detailed rules, selection process, and the annual yearbook may be accessed on the USSYP website
