With 48 energetic and informed students the 2018 South Dakota Teen Pact took to the state capital for a week of activities. These included a mock legislature with bills written, presented and argued by the Teens according to Capitol protocol, prayer walks in the Capitol, key issue debates, praise and worship, quizzes, fun food, senator and governor elections, spiritual challenge, and a healthy dose of camaraderie.
The Teens heard from our own Attorney General Marty Jackley, Secretary of State Shantel Krebs, and FHA Lobbyist Norman Woods. If you could only hear the questions that our teens are asking of our elected officials, you would be amazed.
For the last eleven years, during our State legislative session, South Dakota Teen Pact has given teens the opportunity to learn the legislative process, personally meet our government officials, and build leadership skills. The growth that occurs during this concentrated program greatly impacts our teens in understanding and living out their civil stewardship as Christians in the United States.
