U.S. senators, Thad Cochran and Roger Wicker, are encouraging the nomination of high school students to participate in the Senate Youth Program.
The deadline is Oct. 1. Two Mississippi high school students will be able to spend time with the Senate and see the wheels of government up close.
Juniors and seniors are eligible for the week-long program, March 5-12.
Each recipient also receives a $5,000 under-graduate scholarship from the Hearst Foundation.
