Ingram Borough Council has an opportunity for young people who want to make a difference in the Borough. The program is designed to encourage high school juniors, seniors and college students to participate in local government and to provide their perspective and input.
The program runs for the length of the school year. If you are interested in learning about your local legislature, are interested in working alongside local representatives, or are simply seeking ways to build your resume, you now have the opportunity to join the Borough of Ingram Council as a Junior member.
Students are invited to submit a 100 word essay to the Borough of Ingram outlining the ways they would improve the borough. Council will be selecting candidate(s) to act as the council’s junior member(s). These new members will be invited to sit in on council meetings throughout from April 9, 2018 until Dec 2018.
Students who wish to participate must be a resident of Ingram and must submit their essays no later than March 30, 2018. Essays can be mailed to the attention of either Councilman Ellis or Mayor Sharon Stetz at the Ingram Municipal Building, 40 West Prospect Ave.
There is no better way to make a difference in your community than by getting involved in the decisions that affect it, students are highly encouraged to apply.
