DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Iowa officials are looking for the next high school student to apply for a special position on the State Board of Education. The governor appoints a student each year to serve as a non-voting student member of the board. The next one-year term begins May 1 and runs through the end of April 2014. The State Board of Education is scheduled to meet more than a dozen times during the term. Most meetings will be held in Des Moines. The junior or senior student must be enrolled in a public high school. Applications are due by Feb. 1st.
