High School students asked to apply

Des Moines —  

Iowa high school students are encouraged to apply for the student member position on the State Board of Education. The application deadline is Feb. 1.

Each year, the Governor appoints a student to serve as a non-voting student member of the State Board of Education.

The next one-year term runs from May 1, 2013, through April 30, 2014. The State Board of Education is scheduled to meet at least seven times during that term, with most meetings taking place in Des Moines.

Applicants must be full-time 10th or 11th grade students enrolled in a public high school.

Eligible students also must have:

·         A grade-point average of at least 3.0 on a 4.0 scale, or 3.75 on a 5.0 scale.

·         Attended their present high school for at least the past two consecutive semesters (or equivalent thereof).

·         Demonstrated participation in extra-curricular and community activities, as well as an interest in serving on the State Board of Education.
