Hamilton High School juniors Chelsea Brocker and Kyle Giese were selected to attend the 30th Annual World Affairs Seminar at the University of Wisconsin – Whitewater. The students will participate in the seminar June 17-23 and explore the theme of “Global Leadership Rising Powers: Who Counts?”
Hamilton Social Studies Department faculty members chose Brocker and Giese based on their interest and enthusiasm to learn about global issues. The Sussex Lions and Menomonee Falls Rotary clubs provided their registration fees for the weeklong seminar that includes all lodging, meals and seminar materials.
The World Affairs Seminar is a unique, high energy educational program for high school students from around the world to study global issues and problems. Participants also learn about each others’ customs, traditions, opinions and aspirations. Each participant is a member of a small study group that develops a position paper during the seminar. The daily schedule includes lectures, films, small group discussion sessions and opportunities to participate in social and recreational activities across the campus.
Experts speak on topics related to the seminar theme. This year’s keynote speaker is futurist David Zach, who will provide an entertaining, futuristic tour of technology, economics, business, education and society.
