We certainly hope this will inspire the next generation of U.S. leaders.”
Paris will have the interact with a major presidential candidates, White House officials, congressional staff members, political experts and other VIPs, such Lance Armstong.
After witnessing the inauguration, Paris and the other honored students will experience the grandeur of the inaugural parade, as the president, vice president and their families make their way down Pennsylvania Avenue from the Capitol Building to the White House.
Finishing the day in style, Paris will attend a Black Tie Gala Inaugural Ball.
In addition to participating in inaugural events and festivities, scholars will have the opportunity to explore the numerous historic sites and monuments in our nation’s capital, as well as participate in roundtable discussions, debates and other activities that will help to expand their knowledge of the democratic principles and the presidential election process.
