We will be leaving Friday April 17 and staying the night.  The RMHC is a symposium where 10-13 rocky mountain honors programs are all given the same prompt, and each team will come up with a 10 minute presentation. Each team can be large as the honors program, only three team mebers will be presenting the information at the symposium The teams are judged by outside community membrs to select a winner each year. The prompt for this year is: 
      • Our lives have grown more digital while concerns with national and personal security have increased.  Snowden’s disclosure of the NSA’s surveillance program and (what appears to be) corporate complicity highlights the contemporary tension between the democratic values of a) personal privacy and public transparency, and b) the demand for national security.  Can these values and demands be reconciled? If so, how?  If not, what should take priority? Why?

If you are interested in being apart of the team, or traveling to watch the symposium, please contact Jennifer. 4 extracurricular points will be granted for helping, and attending, 6 points will be granted if you are one of the three presenters.
