The City is giving students a chance to submit questions for the upcoming Teen Political Forum via the popular video sharing web site YouTube. On Tuesday, October 9 from 6 to 8 PM at the Coral Springs Center for the Arts, the City Commission and other representatives will answer these questions and discuss teen issues.
At the Forum, elected officials from city, county, state, and possibly federal levels, will enlighten students with their personal experiences as government officials and conclude with questions from the audience and video sharing. With the upcoming national and local elections in November 2008, students will be able to register to vote along with additional student related opportunities.
Participants must set up a free YouTube account, visit youtube.com/group/coralspringsteens, and join the group to upload a video question no longer than 20 seconds. Submission deadline is Sunday, October 7 by 5 PM.
The event is open to all high school students who live in Coral Springs or who attend one of our five high schools: Coral Springs High, Marjory Stoneman Douglas High, Coral Glades High, Coral Springs Charter and J. P. Taravella High. All students will receive service hours for attending the Forum. Students who attend private schools and live in Coral Springs are also welcome. No registration is required.
