Idaho Delegation's Academy Day is this weekend

Idaho students have opportunity to learn about Military Service Academies

Washington, DC - The Idaho Congressional Delegation will host the Sixth Annual Service Academy Day in Idaho this weekend on Saturday, October 7th, at two locations in Boise and Coeur d'Alene. Academy Day is an opportunity for students, parents, and counselors to gather information about the Congressional nomination process for the United States Military Academy at West Point, NY; the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, MD; the U.S. Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, CO and the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy in Kings Point, NY. While a Congressional nomination is not needed to attend the U.S. Coast Guard Academy, representatives have been invited to share information about this school as well. This year, forums are being held in Coeur d'Alene and Boise. Participants can meet with Academy Liaisons, Cadets, and Midshipmen and hear about each academy and learn how to apply for a Congressional Nomination.
