The seminar is a six-day experience at the U.S. Naval Academy, Bancroft Hall in Annapolis, MD for high achievers who have completed their junior year in high school. Students will learn about life at the Naval Academy from Third Class Midshipmen while at the seminar.

“I believe this is a great opportunity for high school students in the third district to learn about the Naval Academy and the tremendous amount of work that is done there,” said Congressman Frank Lucas. “I would encourage students to attend this seminar to gain an understanding about the duties and responsibilities of being a midshipman and to learn about the different ways they can serve their local communities.”

There are three different seminars taking place June 2-7, June 9-14, and June 16-21. Students are required to be of at least 17 years old on July 1 of the following application year, unmarried, and have superior high school performance.
