Attention high school students: You have until April 29 to apply for Camp 43, a free three-day leadership seminar at the George W. Bush Presidential Library. Admission is highly competitive — only 25 teens will be accepted.

According to the announcement:

“In addition to meeting with prominent business and political leaders to discuss issues, challenges, and strategies, the students take part in a decision-making scenario in the Library’s Situation Room,” said Education Specialist Sharon Brannon. “This is the actual, wood-paneled conference room used by President Bush and his Cabinet members in the White House. Participating in a simulation in which the students act like members of the Administration and collaborate to resolve a crisis is very useful in and of itself; but, having it take place in the actual historic room from the White House, adds authenticity and tremendous energy and excitement.”

Those graduating in 2016, 2017 and 2018 are eligible. You’ll need to complete this application, answer three essay questions, write up a resume and garner two professional letters of recommendation. Click here for details.
