SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - Sen. John Thune is looking for college students to serve as fall interns in his offices in Washington, D.C., Aberdeen, Rapid City, and Sioux Falls.

Interns in the state offices will participate in constituent service and state outreach activities. Students in the Washington office will have the opportunity to witness the legislative process, give Capitol tours and attend Senate votes and hearings.

Thune says that interning in a Senate office provides students with an excellent opportunity to experience democracy in action. The Republican says interns learn about state and national issues and the inner workings of a Senate office.

A resume and cover letter is due by the end of July.
