Congratulations to Students Involved in Youth and Government 2018 Conference
Posted on 03/13/2018

The Youth and Government Conference is held during the second weekend in March each year. As in year’s past Bolton Central School Youth & Government students’ hard work and preparation have paid off.

The Fosdick – San Antonio Memorial Scholarship was awarded to Molly Showers. This award is presented to active participants in the New York State YMCA Youth and Government Program demonstrate the following qualities; involvement in other community activities/organizations, other school and/or YMCA activities and coupled with a demonstrated passion of serving others.

Here are just a few of the highlights; Kiara Mantz was elected as Head Lobbyist for next year's conference. Molly Showers, Kiara Mantz and Jordan Robertson selected to Conference on National Affairs (CONA). The State Director only selects 25 out of over 600 students at the conference. They will represent Bolton Central School and New York State in North Carolina at the National Youth and Government Conference. Summer Foy and Jayden Mignot were selected as alternates for CONA, so if other students are unable to attend, they may have an opportunity to replace them.

Meghan McGurl was a Justice at this year's conference, presiding over judicial cases and will continue to be a justice next year.

Jordan Robertson was elected to be Editor-in-Chief for next year's conference. Jordan will be in charge of the Press Corps.  Press Corps members become involved with the actual skills of newspaper production: writing, interviewing, commentary, editing, layout, photography, graphics, production and circulation.

Jayden Mignot, Kevin Neacy and Isaac Beuerman teamed up to write a Bill about the NYS Minimum Wage and they won best Bill In Assembly Liberty.

Kiara Mantz won best Lobbyist in Senate.  

The tremendous amount of effort Bolton students put forth for this event is inspiring. Watching our youth take an interest in the workings of our political process and serving as leaders among their peers is remarkable!
