The Third Annual Teen Political Forum, for local high school students, will be held on Thursday, January 28. This educational event will be held at Coral Springs High School from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.
The purpose of this Forum is to have city, county and state elected officials enlighten students with their personal experiences as elected officials and address teen issues of interest, concluding with a Q & A from the student audience. The Coral Springs Police Chief and Fire Chief will also be part of the panel.
"This Third Annual Teen Political Forum will again offer our student volunteers a great opportunity to lead this event and our student community another chance to directly address their elected and public safety officials," Commissioner Roy Gold said. “The City Commission is pleased to again offer this opportunity to continue to bridge any perceived gap between students and government officials.”
The event is open to all high school students who live in Coral Springs or who attend our local high schools: Coral Springs High, Marjory Stoneman Douglas High, Coral Glades High, Coral Springs Charter, J. P. Taravella High and Coral Springs Christian Academy. Students will receive service hours for attending the Forum. Students who are home-schooled or attend private schools and live in Coral Springs are also welcome. Students do not need to pre-register.
Coral Springs High is located at 7201 W. Sample Road, just east of Rock Island Road. For more information, please call 954-344-1005.
