HINCKLEY AMBASSADORS ATTEND HARVARD'S NATIONAL CAMPAIGN CONFERENCE
 
Kaitie Jowers and Gerritt Seymour represented the Hinckley Institute at this year's National Campaign for Political and Civic Engagement, hosted by Harvard's Institute of Politics. 
 

Kaitie says: "Participating in the National Campaign Conference really inspired and empowered me to get more involved with voter registration and civic engagement. The conference focused on engaging our peers in the political process, and gave us tools to do so.  The experience was an amazing opportunity, and I hope, moving forward, that more students at the U will better understand the importance of their vote."

If you would like to be involved with getting more students to vote on campus, email Molly Wheeler about the Andrew Goodman Foundation and the Hinckley's partnership with ASUU's Government Relations Board. 



STUDENT SPOTLIGHT: DANE HAWKINS
 
Last year Dane Hawkins, a junior studying business, completed his first internship with the Hinckley Institute. Dane worked through the campaign season with Utah State Representative Craig Hall.  After hundreds of hours of canvasing, manning the phone bank, and talking with constituents, Dane helped Craig Hall and his team pull in a victory. 

Dane says, "Interning with Craig Hall was such a valuable experience in my young adult life because he taught me how to manage and communicate with others on a very efficient level and run a campaign that promoted both Craig and the people that live in Utah.  I had fun, learned a lot, and would do it again in a heart beat!"


This year, Dane has been hired back to work on Representative Hall's team, growing his internship into an even bigger opportunity.
