FREE ENTERPRISE. Participants will be introduced to basic economic principles through INTERACTIVE GAMES, where participants are not just in their seats, but on their feet in activities that teach them about free trade, entrepreneurism and the consequences of political intervention.

NWLA is pleased to have FEE, Foundation for Economic Education, America’s oldest Free Market think tank as part of our annual Symposium and Regional Economic Workshops.

Business leaders, entrepreneurs and public officials will join in two panel discussions: “The Unintended Consequences of Well-intended Legislation”. Learn how governmental rules and regulations can affect our economy, our lives and our liberty.

“Propaganda & Political Correctness”: Learn how politicians, advertisements, and the media often use communication to influence public opinion. Discuss whether Political Correctness can lead to misrepresenting the intentions or meaning of a harmless statement.

CIVIC DUTY. Students are introduced to the moral imperative of standing on principles over politics, irrespective of party affiliation. The second part of the symposium includes a personal tour of all three branches where students will meet with elected officials and learn about:

  • The proper role of government in our Republic.
  • The significance of the Oath of Office to uphold our Constitution.
  • Understanding our inalienable rights to life and liberty including private property rights.
  • The duty of the citizens to remain eternally vigilant as to the activities of those who govern.

Please enjoy this video which was produced by NWLA Youth Ambassador, Ellie Carignan.
