Thune seeking college students for fall internships

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - U.S. Sen. John Thune is looking for college students to be interns this fall in Washington, D.C., and in offices across South Dakota.

Applications should be submitted by July 1.

Interns in the Aberdeen, Rapid City and Sioux Falls offices can expect to participate in constituent service and state outreach. Students in the Washington office will give Capitol tours and attend Senate hearings and votes.

Thune says interns gain valuable knowledge about state and national issues. The Republican senator is chairman of the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation.
