SCARBOROUGH — Students from Scarborough High School and Brunswick High School have been selected to participate in the 50th U.S. Senate Youth Program in Washington, D.C.

Adam Cohen of Scarborough and Julia Brown of Brunswick will be in the capital March 3-10 to observe the federal government in action. Sen. Susan Collins, who participated in the program when she was a student, announced the appointments on Dec. 9.

“My commitment to public service was reinforced as a senior in high school when I was chosen as a delegate,” Collins said. “I am pleased that Julia and Adam have been chosen … and look forward to meeting with them while they are in Washington.”

The students will visit Capitol Hill, the White House, the Pentagon, the State Department, the Supreme Court and other places in Washington. They will also meet with Senators, cabinet officials, and government leaders.

They also will receive $5,000 college scholarships.
