The Nebraska Attorney General's Youth Conference
2018 Youth Conference Participants with Attorney General Peterson
The 2018 Attorney General’s Youth Conference was held on April 10th at the Nebraska State Capitol and attended by 59 high school juniors from across the state representing 40 Nebraska communities. Applicants submitted a brief resume of activities, a short essay about their favorite Constitutional Amendment, and personal recommendations.
During the conference, students examined all three branches of government with representatives providing their unique perspective and overview. Events of the day included remarks and discussions led by Attorney General Peterson, lunch at the Governor’s Residence, and a visit with Lt. Governor Foley. In addition, participants heard messages from Nebraska Supreme Court Justice Stephanie Stacy and Senator Suzanne Geist, representative of District 25-Lincoln.
Students engaged in a mock bill debate and oral arguments. They received an overview of the Attorney General’s Office featuring a panel discussion by the Bureau Chiefs from the Attorney General’s Office and an exploration of online safety hosted by the Attorney General’s Outreach Coordinator, Ryan Sothan.
