W.Va. student to participate in 13th annual RespecTeen National Youth Forum



MINNEAPOLIS - Arianna Price, a 12-year-old from Gerrardstown, W.Va., will be among 51 students - one from each state and the District of Columbia - who will discuss national issues with members of Congress at the 13th annual RespecTeen National Youth Forum, Saturday, April 28, to Thursday, May 3, in Washington, D.C. The RespecTeen program is sponsored by Lutheran Brotherhood, a financial services organization based in Minneapolis.

Price was chosen from more than 10,000 students nationwide who wrote letters to their congressional representatives through the "RespecTeen Speak for Yourself" social studies curriculum. The letters, which were also submitted to the "RespecTeen Speak for Yourself" letter-writing contest, expressed students' views on a variety of national public issues, ranging from gun violence to health care.
