About 20 Ninth graders from Grand Rapids High School, Deer River High School and Northern Lights Community School attended Youth Day at the Capitol on March 29. The morning session included presentations from Secretary of State Steve Simon and Representative Mariani. As part of the social studies curriculum, these young people spent a few weeks understanding their community through the Youth Voices Survey data.
The youth learned more about legislation being discussed this session that impacts them directly.
During the afternoon they had a tour of the new Senate Office Building from Senator Saxhaug.
Thanks to Mrs. Carlson for submitting this picture of the GRHS students that attended.
