I would love to apply for this. when do they notify you? The application
doesn't seem so difficult. How soon do you get chosen and when does it take
place? Robin in Illinois.
Apply now. If I recall, the notification comes around the end of March. The
application is not really difficult, however, I believe a lot of it is HOW you
present yourself, as well as WHAT you say. I wrote and rewrote many times
before I had it "right". Also, they choose two persons from each state for each
of the three trips which are in Oct., Nov., June. I know for a fact that you
are completing therefore with the number of persons who have applied from your
state rather than with the thousands as a whole who apply. Some states had
more applicants than others. Those of you in less populated states may have
even a better chance! Also, if your district is willing to support your trip in
Oct. or Nov., and if you are available to go on any date, your chances of
winning might be increased. Chista, on this list, encouraged me to apply, and
helped me, as she had gone the year before. Bless you, Christa!
