Ahmadi Named US Senate Youth Program Delegate

December 8, 2022

Congratulations to Essex High School senior Maddie Ahmadi, who was one of only two Vermont students named a state delegate as part of the 2023 United States Senate Youth Program (USSYP). 


Annually, two students from each state are selected for a $10,000 scholarship and an all-expenses-paid week-long trip to Washington D.C. While at the capitol, students learn about the inner workings of the federal government and they meet with members of Congress, the Supreme Court, and the Presidential Administration. 


The Vermont Principals’ Association, the United States Senate Youth Program, and the USSYP Committee all encourage Vermont students who will be in their junior or senior years, and hold an elected or appointed school or community position, to apply for this distinguished scholarship and opportunity next year. Completed applications for next year are due by October 23, 2023. For more information, please visit
