Who can apply?
Every two years, letters are sent to all Principals of High schools in the Northwest Territories. They are asked to help select grade 9-10 students in their school by providing them with the application information or by referring them to this website. All applications are considered and one student from each riding is selected to represent his or her Member of the Legislative Assembly. Any student in the NWT in grade 9 or 10 can apply. All expenses are paid, and include; airfare, accommodation, meals, and any scheduled extra curricular activities. Additional money for shopping or free time will not be provided.
