Brush Up on Your Military Herstory — $35
Women’s Memorial at Arlington National Cemetery
This NCCWSL experience gives you a panoramic view of Washington, D.C., and an in-depth look at the only major national memorial honoring all servicewomen. At the Women’s Memorial at Arlington National Cemetery, you’ll explore the Exhibit Gallery, the Hall of Honor, and the Court of Valor. From there you can view any of the 250,000 digitized stories of servicewomen at the memorial or add your own story to the register by interviewing the family, friends, and neighbors of military women.
So You Want to Work in Politics — $35
U.S. Capitol Building Tour
Don’t miss this chance to see where the action takes place! Join a women-focused tour of the U.S. Capitol and learn how to begin and pursue a career in advocacy, politics, and policy making from a panel of women who work for senators and representatives on Capitol Hill. Make sure to dress presentably and wear comfortable walking shoes.
There’s a Reason It’s the First Amendment — $35
Journalists, history buffs, news junkies, and lawyers in the making will love this up-close and personal look at the Newseum, a 250,000-square-foot museum of all things news. You’ll learn about photography ethics in a workshop led by Newseum staff and then put those new skills to good use as you engage in real-life case studies where you’ll face the same decisions that photojournalists and editors do. You’ll also have time to explore the permanent collection of news history.
