Local high school students always get a first-hand opportunity on how local government works at the annual Teen Political Forum, and this won’t change due to the coronavirus.
The educational event, planned and organized by high school students from Coral Glades, Coral Springs, Coral Springs Charter School, J.P. Taravella, and Marjory Stoneman Douglas, has been a staple in the city since it was created in 2007 from former Mayor Roy Gold.
Now led with guidance from Commissioner Larry Vignola and city staff, the event provides teens with an opportunity to address and engage in Q&A sessions with county and local elected officials.
So far, the elected officials include the Coral Springs city commission, State Rep. Dan Daley, School Board Member Lori Alhadeff, and Broward County Commissioner Michael Udine.
Students can use #TeenPoliticalForum on Twitter to join the conversation on social media. Those who wish to ask questions are encouraged to send their questions in a video format using this form.
