LEWISTON – Allyson Beaucage, a student at Lewiston High School, has been selected to attend the 2006 Congressional Student Leadership Conference, sponsored by LeadAmerica, at Georgetown University in Washington, D.C.

The conference is a college-accredited invitational leadership program for academically talented and promising young leaders from across the United States and internationally. Exceptional high school students with a record of academic achievement and extracurricular or community involvement are invited.

Students select an academic area to study, or they may attend Leadership University, an in-depth, intensive leadership development conference for young leaders who want to challenge themselves to excel and realize their full potential.

Through briefings and discussions with national and international leaders and simulations, students experience leadership in action and learn first-hand about the complexities of decision-making in a chosen field or profession.

By engaging in interactive workshops and activities, students learn and develop leadership skills, including effective communication, conflict resolution, team building and time management.

More information on LeadAmerica and the conference can be found at www.lead-america.org or by calling 1-866-FYI.LEAD.

Beaucage has chosen to attend the crime scene investigation conference and the trip will cost $2,100.
