Learn  more about this unique and exciting program for youth in Montgomery County:


"As we have witnessed so often, student voices are compelling and challenge us as elected leaders to make our communities better. I started the annual Councilmember for a Day Challenge in 2015 with the goal of elevating those voices and encouraging students to fully engage in the public policymaking process. In 2021, we took our challenge to the next level by providing an educational storytelling experience to inform participants on the best methods as well as the ethics that go into engaging, inclusive digital storytelling about public policy issues. On behalf of my Council colleagues, we all look forward to the innovative public policy recommendations from our empowered and civically engaged youth."                                                             
Councilmember Craig Rice, District 2

Montgomery County Public School students in grades 8 through 12 are eligible to register for the storytelling experience.
