The Workshop Foundation is pleased to announce the Cruise Industry Charitable Foundation has awarded a generous grant to support the Democracy In Action seminar from June 17-23, 2017 in Washington. DC. Since 1998 the Workshops Foundation has enjoyed the great privilege of working with Cruise Industry Charitable Foundation on this important program and we are very grateful for their support!
The 2017 Democracy In Acton Scholarships will be awarded to High School students from the state of Texas to attend a one-week seminar in Our Nation’s Capital for a hands-on learning experience of how our three branches of government work together to create public policy with an even more detailed analysis of the Legislative branch of government. Scholars will hear from a variety of guest speakers, meet with members of the US Congress and work together in committees to develop legislation they will propose and debate in their Model Congress simulation. In addition scholars will have the opportunity to enjoy the notable sights of Washington, DC and celebrate the end of a great week on a dinner/dance cruise on the Potomac River.
Thank you to the Cruise Industry Charitable Foundation for supporting this important program!
