Eight-grader to attend National Youth Forum

April 15, 1994

Aubry Wyatt, an eighth-grade student at North Carroll Middle School, was recently chosen to represent Maryland at the RespecTeen National Youth Forum April 23-28 in Washington.

She was chosen from more than 8,000 students nationwide who entered letters they had written to their U.S. representatives in the RespecTeen "Speak For Yourself" letter-writing contest.

The contest was conducted in Craig Giles' social studies class and included discussion on how bills become laws, letter writing lawmakers and student advocacy.

Aubry Wyatt's letter, which addressed maintaining anti-drug and alcohol programs in schools, was judged by a panel of educators based on quality and clarity of thought, argument, supporting data, expression, sincerity and originality.

The National Youth Forum gives students an opportunity to experience the legislative process firsthand and to express their ideas and viewpoints to influential decision-makers in the government.
