A sophomore from each Missouri high school is nominated by either the guidance counselor, social studies faculty or the student body, and selection is based on citizenship, scholarship and leadership.  Benjamin and his fellow sophomores observed the legislature in session; toured the Capitol, Governor’s Mansion and Supreme Court building; and met state legislators. They also attended a luncheon at First United Methodist Church.
