Indiana High School Democrats Wins National Award
Indiana High School Democrats proudly announced today that the organization was the 2012 winner of High School Democrats of America’s “Developed State Chapter” award. The national award, which was presented to them last weekend at the Young Democrats of America Winter Meeting in Chicago, is presented annually to a state chapter that has exhibited excellent outreach efforts and/or exceptional growth. It is part of the “Life of the Party” award series, which highlights the contributions of high school students to politics and government.
“This truly is a great honor,” said Nicholas Mitch, State Chair of Indiana High School Democrats, “We’ve been working tirelessly to grow our organization and spread our message, so it’s nice to receive national recognition for it, though that’s certainly not the reason we’re in this. We’re working hard because Hoosier students deserve better and because we need to get this state back on a track towards prosperity for everyone”
Indiana High School Democrats is Indiana’s official state chapter of the Young Democrats of America-High School Caucus and they represent High School Democrats chapters across the state.
