Official invites civic-minded youths to join legislative council

June 19, 2012

By Staff

Lt. Gov. Brad Owen invited civic-minded youths to apply for position on the council responsible for advising state legislators on youth issues.

The 22-member Legislative Youth Advisory Council is comprised of teenagers between 14 and 18. Members serve two-year terms and, if eligible, can be reappointed for additional terms.

“This is a very action-oriented and diverse group of bright young people,” Owen said in a statement. “Each year they tackle a broad range of issues that are important to youth, take positions on legislative bills and work closely with legislators on seeing these bills through the legislative process. I would strongly encourage any interested youth to apply.”

The lieutenant governor makes the final appointments to the panel based on the recommendations of Legislative Youth Advisory Council membership.

Find the application form on the Legislative Youth Advisory Council website, http://lyac.leg.wa.gov. Email lyac@leg.wa.gov or call 360-725-6039 for more information. Interested teenagers must apply by June 25.
