Location: Washington, DC

Congressman Jim Sensenbrenner (R-Menomonee Falls) announced today that twenty one students from Wisconsin's Fifth Congressional District have received nominations to the US Service Academies.

"Each year, I am impressed with the caliber of individuals who apply to my office," Sensenbrenner said. "These young men and women have already established a strong record of community service, excellence in academics and sports, and leadership among their peers. I congratulate each of these students on their nomination and wish them the best of luck on all their future endeavors."

Of the twenty one students, three have been named principal nominees. If the principal nominee meets the academic, physical, and medical standards set by the academy, they are assured an offer of appointment to the academy. If the principal nominee does not qualify or chooses not to attend, the alternates compete for the vacancy. Alternates are also part of a pool of applicants from which the academies will choose their incoming class.

Nominees for the United States Service Academies were chosen from an impressive group of applicants residing throughout Wisconsin's Fifth Congressional District. Each applicant endured a rigorous application process culminating in a personal interview with a member of Congressman Sensenbrenner's Academy Selection Committee.

Congressman Sensenbrenner is currently accepting nomination applications from the new 5th District for those who would like to enter any United States Service Academy in the summer of 2014. Inquiries concerning this process can be made to the Congressman's District Office in Brookfield at (262) 784-1111.
