Press Release
WASHINGTON—Tomorrow,  more than 160 high school students from Utah's First Congressional District will attend the 10th annual Education Conference hosted by Congressman Rob Bishop (R-UT) at the Utah State Capitol.  Each year students join together at the state capitol to engage in discussions on topics pertaining to the three branches of federal government, history, and the election process.

"I am grateful to the teachers, staff, volunteers, and speakers who help make this conference possible for students each year. Having spent the better part of three decades as a public school teacher in Utah, I recognize the importance of providing students with opportunities for practical application of their textbook studies. This event is a great venue for students to engage with their peers and expand their understanding of government and history outside of the classroom," said Bishop.

During the conference, students will participate in group discussions, conduct case study sessions, and discuss and debate current policy issues being addressed by Congress.  Guest speakers this year include Lieutenant Governor Spencer Cox as well as Judge Ted Stewart.

Students were selected by their teachers for attendance at this event.  Invitations were sent to all high schools and school districts located in the First Congressional District.
