STUDENT ORGANIZATIONS CELEBRATE LEGISLATIVE DAY

Students from across the state representing six of Nebraska’s Career and Technical Student Organizations visited the Capitol February 19th in celebration of CTSO Legislative Day.

The event helped students develop a better understanding of state government and the Nation’s only unicameral. While at the Capitol, students met with state leaders and attended legislative hearings and CTSO State Officers were recognized during floor debate by state senators.

Participants also had a chance to meet with Nebraska Commissioner of Education Matthew L. Blomstedt and members of the State Board of Education. Part of the day included a display showcase from Career and Technical Education (CTE) programs in the Capitol Rotunda.
