Lewiston seeking youth for City Council


LEWISTON — The city is seeking members to serve on the Lewiston Youth Advisory Council for one year starting in July.

The deadline for applications is May 15.

Applicants must be in grades 9 to 12 at either Lewiston High School or St. Dominic Academy, or will be in the fall, or a Lewiston resident at the time of application.

Lewiston home-school students are also welcome to apply for membership. Current members may reapply. Six seniors will be leaving the council in June.

The council was established by the City Council in October 2001. It enables youth to work toward goals to empower youth community wide, as well as undertake projects that enhance the community. The youth council also serves as a liaison between youth of the community and the city.

A selection committee will review all applications, conduct interviews and appoint members by June 30. Those chosen will be notified and officially appointed at the City Council meeting in July.
