High School Students in the district are encouraged to contact one of my offices to request a nomination to one of our nations service academies.
I believe engagement with our students on policies being discussed in Washington is critical to their education, and video chats are a great way for us to discuss important issues. I encourage high school teachers to reach out to my office to set up a video chat for their classrooms.
Each spring, the Congressional Institute sponsors a nationwide high school visual art competition to recognize and encourage artistic talent in the nation and in each congressional district. Students submit entries my office and a panel of local artists judge the submitted pieces. Winners are recognized both here in Wisconsin and at an annual awards ceremony in Washington, DC. The winning district piece is displayed for one year at the U.S. Capitol.
My office participates in the district-wide Congressional App Challenges for middle school and high school students. This challenge is a great way to encourage students to learn to code and inspire them to pursue careers in computer science.

An internship in my office provides a great opportunity for students to learn first-hand how our government works. Interns gain valuable knowledge and experience by having hands-on opportunity to learn about the legislative process, as well as the operations of a Congressional office.

Information is available to students to learn more about the process of locating and applying for financial aid.
