Published: Thursday, May 9, 2013 5:30 a.m. CDT

SPRINGFIELD – The Illinois State Board of Education is accepting applications from eligible high school students interested in serving on the state agency’s Student Advisory Council for the 2013-14 school year.

Applications are due 5 p.m. May 31. Interviews will be scheduled in July for applicants chosen as possible members. Contact Mike Hatfill of ISBE at 217-524-4832 or for information.

Established in 1975, the council represents a diverse group of students statewide who have demonstrated a strong work ethic, the ability to think creatively and work well in groups. It is open to students attending a public high school in Illinois who will be a sophomore, junior or senior in the fall.

Members represent student concerns and can provide thoughts on ISBE’s existing and proposed programs, policies and regulations.

The students also choose a special project to research and present before the board at the end of the school year. Visit to read about past projects and for information about the council.
