High school sophomores, juniors and seniors in Curry and Roosevelt counties along with those level students from across New Mexico who are interested in spending a day with the FBI in Albuquerque are encouraged to apply for the agency's Teen Academy, which will be held Tuesday, July 26.

According to a news release issued from the agency's Albuquerque office, the deadline to apply is July 7.

The FBI Teen Academy allows participants an opportunity to have a look at the inner workings of the FBI.

FBI special agents and support personnel will provide "lively" presentations on a range of timely topics, including terrorism, cyber security, public corruption, evidence handling, SWAT, and the day-to-day operations in a typical FBI office.

The news release described the academy for students to meet peers that share the same passion and drive to make a difference. Participants discover the FBI is much more than a government agency, "it is a family that works for the betterment of the community."

Students accepted into the program will be expected to attend all activities, which will run from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. July 26.

The news release points out punctuality, professional behavior, and appropriate dress are required.
