The 11th annual Nebraska Capitol Forum on America’s Future was held at the State Capitol. The event, sponsored by the Nebraska Humanities Council and Secretary of State Gale, offered Nebraska high school students the opportunity to consider and debate American foreign policy issues. Ninety students from 21 schools registered for the event. Pictured is the group assembled in the Warner Chamber for one of the sessions.
