Youth Parliament 2019

Youth Parliament 2019

Are you between 16 and 18 and and would like to represent the Wigram Electorate at Youth Parliament in 2019?

The Youth Parliament 2019 programme will occur from 1 March to 31 August 2019, with 120 Youth MPs and up to 20 Youth Press Gallery members attending the two-day Youth Parliament event in Wellington on 16 and 17 July 2019.

Youth Parliament is an opportunity for young New Zealanders to learn first-hand about New Zealand’s democracy and to influence decision making. Youth Parliament replicates the real Parliament as close as possible.

Youth Parliament aims to:

  • enable young people to participate in tenure giving them an opportunity to volunteer
  • allow young people to have their voices heard on current issues
  • show to young people how Parliament and government processes work.

Please forward your application to Elmarie Els no later than  Wednesday 12 September,  expressing why you should be the STC Wigram Electorate Youth Parliament nominee. The successful candidate will be interviewed by Hon Dr. Megan Woods on Thursday 11 October 2018.
