All High school students are encouraged to participate in the 2014 Teen Political Forum - an open mic style forum where students will address state and local elected officials and ask questions that are important to them. The Teen Political Forum will be held on Thursday, April 24 at the Coral Springs Center for the Arts from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. High school students, who live in Coral Springs or attend any of our local Coral Springs high schools, are invited to attend this educational and leadership-building event.
State and county elected officials will be in attendance, along with the Coral Springs City Commission. Last year, over 350 high school students representing Coral Springs High, Marjory Stoneman Douglas High, Coral Glades High, Coral Springs Charter, J. P. Taravella High and Coral Springs Christian Academy attended the event at the Center for the Arts.
Before the official event starts, students will be treated to complimentary food items donated by local restaurants. Participants will also have the opportunity to win prizes and earn service hours.
