LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Twenty students from across Nebraska have been honored by Secretary of State John Gale - and will get $50 gift cards - for their work during this year’s primary and general elections.
Each student will receive a $50 gift card by the Nebraska Bankers Association, which along with the Secretary of State’s office, sponsors the Youth Election Service program.
Gale says the purpose of the program is to “spark an interest in the election process among young people.”
Teens age 14 to 18 are required to work at least four hours during each election in order to qualify for the drawing in which names are selected for the 20 gift cards.
Officials say 168 students from 25 counties took part in this year’s program.
