Press Release

Congresswoman Betty McCollum today reminded young people in Minnesota's Fourth Congressional District that the deadline to submit applications for nomination to U.S. Service Academies is at the close of business on Monday, November 7.

"It is my honor to nominate some of our community's outstanding young people for admission to our nation's service academies," McCollum said. "Admission to these institutions offers the opportunity to serve our country and receive a world-class education. I encourage all interested students to apply by Monday."
