Youth Government Day for Kewaunee County Students

On May 2, nearly two dozen high school students from Algoma, Kewaunee and Luxemburg learned about the inner workings of local government in Kewaunee County during Youth Government Day. Throughout the course of the day, elected officials provided insight on their roles and gave tours of their offices. The day started with students taking an oath of office then continued with tours of the the Kewaunee County Courthouse, Sheriff’s Department, Jail Museum and Administration Center, which included a stop in the county board room, where students had a chance to see what it’s like to vote. The students wrapped up their day with a mock trial before each earning a certificate for their participation. This was the 54th year of this program.
