The Youth Summit provides an opportunity for Illinois high school students to explore and debate current issues as participants in our democratic society. This year's Summit participants will discuss "should voting be mandatory for all eligible voters?" After listening to a panel of experts, students will break into smaller groups to choose and defend a position on the topic they studied in their curriculum and those discussed during the panel discussion.
There is a $150.00 registration fee per school. Those students wishing to attend on their own will be charged a $15 registration fee.
