MADISON - High school juniors and seniors who want to experience government first-hand should apply to participate in the Wisconsin Senate Scholar Program, according to Senator Dale Schultz.

"The program is an intensive week-long education for students to better their understanding of Wisconsin government and the legislature's role in representative democracy," said Schultz (R-Richland Center).

Schultz joined Senator Judy Robson (D-Beloit) to create the program in 2005 to give participating students direct experiences with state government.

The Senate Scholar Program is open to any high school junior or senior and is not based on party affiliation. Admission to the program is competitive and limited to 33 students.

Schultz encourages applicants to submit applications by Jan. 1 to receive full consideration. To access application materials and additional information on the Wisconsin Senate Scholar program, visit Schultz's Web site,
