YOUTH MEMBER OF PARLIAMENT

I would like to invite the youth (16-18 years of age inclusive) community you work with to seek the nomination to become my Youth Member of Parliament for the period January 2016 to July 2016. This is an exciting opportunity for a young Hamiltonian to engage in politics. Applicants must:

• be 16 – 18 years of age (inclusive) at the time of selection as a Youth Member of Parliament

• be active in the community

• be passionate about youth issues, politics and/or social change

• be able to seek the views, opinions and ideas of their peers and represent these at Youth Parliament 2016

• be committed to contributing their best to the Youth Parliament 2016. This commitment includes being able to attend Youth Parliament in July 2016 (during the school holidays).

This year I have decided to select my Youth Parliament representative by inviting video submissions for interested young people.

Please can you circulate the attached information and invitation to students who qualify?

I am available to visit your community to discuss this opportunity with both staff and youth. Please contact my office on 07 839 680307 839 6803 to set up a time.

I am looking forward to original, creative and innovative submissions from your students.

Yours sincerely

Sue Moroney Hamilton-based Labour List MP
