Youth Parliament 2019

Youth MP

The selection process for the Youth Parliament 2019 programme is now underway. This triennial programme gives young people the opportunity to understand and be a part of the Parliamentary process, connect with their communities, and bring young peoples’ voice to Parliament. This is a significant opportunity for 120 young New Zealanders as every Member of Parliament will select a Youth MP to represent their community (please note that this is a non-partisan initiative and MP’s carry out the process as the local constituent MP, rather than being party political).

The process for the 2019 parliament is as follows:
1. Candidate Submissions: 3 - 31 September 2018
       - Submit a short (<600 words) essay on ONE of three topics 
       - Submit a short (30sec) introduction video via YouTube
2. Intro videos uploaded to Facebook for voting: 8 - 15 October 2018
3. Selected candidates attend a morning group panel meeting on 19 October 2018
4. Selection made and candidates informed

More detailed information on the criteria and process can be found here.
