Hi! My name is Linda, I'm the Outreach Coordinator for the Governor's Institutes of Vermont. I'm writing to let you know that we're still actively looking for curious and creative 9th-11th graders to join us at this summer's Governor's Institutes. We haven't had anyone apply for GIV from PHS yet this year, and we really want to have Proctor represented!. The deadline for all schools to have nominations in is Sunday, April 1, but we will be accepting late applications until all seats are full!

Let me know if you have any questions, I'm happy to help!

Thank you,

Students will choose from a mix of classes in: MUSIC (including songwriting, singing, composing, playing), THEATER (including lighting design, acting, improv, character-making), VISUAL ARTS (including stone carving, painting, drawing, printmaking, and more), FILM, CREATIVE WRITING, & DANCE.
