Congratulations to Sam Richter, the 2019 Bogdan Martinovich Scholarship Winner.
My Name is Samuel Richter. Growing up in a home where discussions
and debates about politics, politicians, and world events are regular
occurrences helped form my desire to become involved in politics.
Despite focusing on government and world history with AP and honors courses at school, I still craved hands-on experience. During my junior

invaluable and I am looking forward to pursuing my political goals while
