On Monday, March 19, 2018, four Wilcox-Hildreth students along with Mr. Meyers, sponsor, attended the 20th Capital Forum on America’s Future in Lincoln. This year 25 schools from across Nebraska attended the Forum, each school brought 4 students. The Forum is designed to engage students in deliberation over issues confronting the United States. These topics included Climate Change, Immigration, Nuclear Proliferation, Terrorism, and Trade. Students attending this year’s conference were: Caleb S-Climate Change, Garrett O-Immigration, Rebecca S-Nuclear Proliferation, and Carlie R-Terrorism. Once the issues are deliberated, students are divided into four groups and assigned a future role which the United States could possibly pursue in international relations. These features include: #1 Lead the World to Democracy, #2 Protect U.S. Global Interests, #3 Build a More Cooperation World, and #4 Protect the U.S. Homeland. Once each future gives a presentation for why their future is the best route to follow, students participated in a poll to vote for the future they support. In a very close vote, the students this year selected Future #3 followed closely by Future #2. The Forum ended the day with the students having the opportunity to ask questions of Nebraska’s three members of the House Representatives via a video conference. Overall is was a very demanding day but rewarding experience.
