Thirteen student delegates from The Youth in Government program at the Door County YMCA successfully participated in the annual Youth in Government weekend in Madison recently. Youth and Teen Development Director Tyler Powell says he was really proud of the group of students who participated.
Students signed up for branches of the government and worked through legislation just like what is done at the state’s capitol. The Youth in Government program, which is for students from grade 7 through 12, started at the beginning of the school year and concluded with the Madison experience February 18-19. Students were from Sevastopol, Sturgeon Bay, and Southern Door schools.
