On March 29th, Jack Findlay, Kade Bredemeier, Zach Beaver, Braden Oliver, and Randall Richard, FCHS juniors were selected to attend the Capital Forum in Lincoln. The Capital Forum is put on by Humanities Nebraska and it is in its 21st year as a program. Students are given literature on five different topics. The topics range from Terrorism, Nuclear war, Immigration and America’s place in a ever changing world. The students meet and discuss their individual topic with students from across the state, who have researched the same topic. Students are also given the opportunity to create presentations with their group on a future topic. To finish the day, students were given the opportunity to meet with the three House of Representative members from Nebraska, and ask them questions on a variety of topics. Specifically, Nebraska flooding, foreign affairs, and even educational topics were discussed. It was a great time for our students, and they learned a great deal about local government. Mr. Josh McCampbell is their American History instructor.
