Washington, October 27, 2020
BOWLING GREEN, KY – Congressman Brett Guthrie (KY-02) today released the following reminder for high school students who may be interested in applying for a nomination to one of our nation’s five U.S. Service Academies:
“Every year, I am honored to nominate some of the Second District’s brightest students to our nation’s service academies,” said Guthrie. “The application is due November 12, 2020. I am always inspired by the students who choose to serve our country, and I am sure this year will be no exception. Please contact our office if you need help with this process.”
The United States has five Service Academies: The U.S. Military Academy, the U.S. Naval Academy, the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy, the U.S. Air Force Academy, and the U.S. Coast Guard Academy. To be accepted into one of the academies, students must receive a congressional nomination from their local representative or senator.
Congressman Guthrie explains the congressional nomination process in his Virtual Academy Day video. A playlist of videos from each service academy can be found here. All application materials are available on Congressman Guthrie’s website here.
Students must apply to be considered for a nomination from Congressman Guthrie by November 12, 2020. Please note that in addition to applying for a nomination, students must also apply to the academy or academies of their choice. Students should contact Karen Cline, Service Academy Coordinator in Congressman Guthrie’s Bowling Green District Office at 270-842-9896 with any questions.
