They will be recognized during halftime of Friday’s football game at Packer Field. They’ll also take part in the West Fest parade on Saturday.

Ready to listen

The Moorhead School District is hosting six community forums in the run-up to an $850 per-pupil levy referendum in November. Officials are calling them “listening sessions,” and they urge residents to come prepared to voice concerns and ask questions.

“We want to provide our residents, especially those who may not have children in school, an opportunity to attend a session where they can learn about the school district, get answers to their questions and offer feedback,” said Superintendent Lynne Kovash.

Community sessions are scheduled at 7 p.m. on the following dates:

The district is also offering a State of the District session through Moorhead Community Education from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Oct. 19 in the Probstfield Center for Education Board Room.

Senate Youth Program

Two North Dakota high school students will be chosen to spend a week in Washington, D.C., and receive a $5,000 college scholarship, in the 2011 Senate Youth Program.

The all-expenses-paid trip gives students an opportunity to study how the federal government works.

The 2011 program is March 5-12.

The North Dakota selection deadline is Oct. 22, with winners announced in mid-December.

Delegates must be junior or senior elected student officers for the 2010-11 academic year and live in the state where they attend school. Learn more online at www.ussenateyouth.org.

Students should contact their high school principal or state program administrator Pauline Iler, 600 E. Boulevard Ave., Bismarck, ND 58505-0440. Phone (701) 328-4518 or e-mail paIler@nd.gov.
