A group of 21 high school students in Kewaunee County will have the opportunity to experience the roles that local elected officials hold for one day in May. Next Wednesday, the 54th annual Youth Government Day will be held at the Kewaunee County Courthouse and administrative building. County Clerk Jamie Annoye says the program is designed to teach students about the inner workings of local government.
Annoye adds that feedback from past students showed that participating in the mock trial in the afternoon is the most interesting aspect of the day. Students from Luxemburg-Casco, Algoma and Kewaunee High Schools as well as three teachers from each school district will attend the all-day program next Wednesday which is sponsored by American Legion Posts and Auxiliaries.
