Weller attends USSYP event in Washington, D.C.

Last week, New York Mills senior Heather Weller was one of two Minnesota students to attend the United States Senate Youth Program (USSYP) in Washington D.C.

Each state has its own application process, varying in difficulty. In Minnesota, a student must be in an elected position to qualify. Weller qualified because of her service on the Minnesota Youth Council. Last fall, she spent several weekends filling out an extensive application, which included an essay on the necessity of checks and balances, as well as a section where she had to rank how she believed Minnesota was doing in various areas. She learned that she won the trip in December and traveled to Washington D.C. from March 4-11 for the 55th annual USSYP.
