2020 Students Inside Albany Conference


The 20th annual Students Inside Albany conference will be held from May 17-20, 2020 in Albany, sponsored by the League of Women Voters of New York State Education Foundation, Inc. It is designed to increase students' awareness of New York's governmental process. This interactive conference brings together high school students from across the state to learn about the process by which citizens can participate in the policy making arena, including tours of the Capitol and opportunities to shadow their representatives in the Senate and Assembly. The League will send one awardee and there will be one alternate in the event the awardee cannot participate.

All expenses are covered, including travel, overnight accommodations and meals during the conference.

All application credentials must be received by February 3, 2020. Late and incomplete applications will not be considered. An interview may be conducted. The awardee will be provided with permission forms and materials that must be received by the NYS League of Women Voters by March 1, 2020 to afford the State League time to make all arrangements.
