Twenty-five young people from Northfield attended Youth Day at the Capitol on April 17. This was the first time youth from Northfield participated as a group in the annual event, which gives young Minnesotans the opportunity to develop advocacy and leadership skills. While in St. Paul, the Northfield youth met with both state Sen. Bill Lieske and Rep. Kristi Pursell, and they took part in a large group meeting with Gov. Tim Walz.
