Tahoe teen to visit Washington lawyers


Myanna Stewart, 14, an eighth-grade student at South Tahoe Middle School, has been invited to participate in the National Junior Leaders Conference for outstanding middle-school and junior-high students. The event will take place June 25 through July 9 in Washington, D.C.

Stewart is the daughter of Daniel and Kay Stewart of South Lake Tahoe.

The conference includes many camps in various locations including U.S. Government & Politics, Intelligence Defense & National Security, CSI, Medicine & Healthcare, Global Business & Entrepreneurship, Law & Trial Advocacy and Leadership University. The program in which Stewart is interested is Law & Trial Advocacy.

The trip includes the opportunity to visit many Washington landmarks. Stewart will get to visit the U.S. Supreme Court, the Superior Court, law schools and Washington monuments at night.

She will go to courses in law and work with some of the best law professors in the country and live like she is in the law profession through lectures, simulations, mock trials, small group discussion and debates.

“I have been interested in law my whole life and it would be awesome for this kind of opportunity to turn into a reality,” Stewart said.

The one problem she faces is the cost of $2,089 to attend the conference. This does not include airfare and money for souvenirs.

She estimates that overall it will be at least $5,000. The deadline for her to register and send the money is March 6.

“This is an awesome opportunity for me to receive an enormous amount of education and I would really appreciate any donations that businesses or individuals can give,” Stewart said.
