The annual Nebraska Capitol Forum on America’s Future allowed high school students to consider and discuss U.S. foreign policy issues. About 100 students throughout Nebraska participated in the daylong forum at the State Capitol sponsored by the Nebraska Humanities Council and Secretary Gale. In addition to Gale, Gov. Dave Heineman, U.S. Sen. Ben Nelson, and U.S. Reps. Lee Terry and Adrian Smith participated in the event. Pictured is a group of students looking at posters created by participating schools.
