Students for Wisconsin is a Political Action Committee registered with the Government Accountability Board of Wisconsin, and is run completely by high school students.
It was founded and is run by students, for students, based on the philosophy that educated students become informed voters, productive workers, and innovative job creators, with a goal of revitalizing grassroots efforts by Wisconsin students to stop the drastic and dangerous policies of Scott Walker and his legislative allies.
Following an organizational meeting by many of the current members, two of the students from Students For Wisconsin went to the Government Accountability Board office in Madison to deliver the registration form in person on March 26th, 2012. Students For Wisconsin has been working tirelessly for Wisconsin education ever since.
