Citizens for Global Solutions of Greater St. Louis will provide transportation, registration, meals, & lodging for a college student or a high-school junior or senior to participate in the Citizens for Global Solutions national assembly in Washington DC.
The conference begins at 7:00 p.m. Thursday, March 19, so you should be able to leave St. Louis Thursday morning. It ends Saturday mid-afternoon, March 21, so you could be back that night if you wish. If you want to do sightseeing in Washington on Sunday, we will also provide housing for you for Saturday night (but not extra meals). Getting to and from the St. Louis airport is your responsibility.
If you want to be a contestant for this all-expenses-paid trip, write a 3-5 page typed essay (double-spaced) consisting of two parts. In the first part tell us about your background and why you would be a good person for us to send to this meeting. In the second part share with us your thinking about some of the problems our world community faces and how we might deal with them more effectively.
In exchange for this subsidy, C/GS of St. Louis expects you to give us a brief written report about
the conference & what you learned from it. (This gets published in our local newsletter.)
Send your essay to:
Ronald J. Glossop, 8894 Berkay Avenue, Jennings, MO 63136-5004
or preferably by e-mail to: <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Be sure to include your home address and home telephone number.
