Local high school students have an opportunity to meet and ask questions to their city, state, and county representatives about issues they care about.

This annual educational event, created by former mayor Roy Gold in 2007, is organized by students from Coral Glades, Coral Springs, Coral Springs Charter, J.P. Taravella, and Marjory Stoneman Douglas with guidance from city staff.

Last year’s event was held virtually due to  COVID-19 but is now back live for the community to watch live.

Vice Mayor Joshua Simmons, who led last year’s forum, says this is an event he believes in wholeheartedly.

“I’m incredibly proud of our city for providing a platform that encourages our youth to engage and address state, county, and local elected officials by asking them important – and sometimes tough – questions.”

Held Tuesday, April 7, 2022, at 7 p.m., the Teen Political Forum will be held live at the Coral Springs Center for the Arts

Students can submit their questions in a video format online or by tweeting TeenPolForum using the hashtag #TeenPoliticalForum.
