Governor's Youth Advisory Council

Posted: Updated:

Nebraska Governor, Dave Heineman, is urging kids from the panhandle to join the Governor's Youth Advisory Council.

The group provides a civic opportunity for teens to explore the legislative process and the role of the executive branch.

Up to 25 youth can serve on the council with equal representation from each legislative district.

Currently the furthest west representative is from Kearney.

During this afternoon's press conference, Heineman says there are seven vacancies on the council, and wants more teens from the western 2/3 of the state.

"Perhaps the most important role of the council," says Heineman,  "involves their responsibility to represent youth from their economic, cultural and geographical backgrounds in discussions about important issues."

To find out more on how you or your kids can become involved in the Youth Advisory Council, visit www.nebraskachildren.org or call (402) 817-2003.
