Iowa officials are looking for the next high school student to apply for a special position on the State Board of Education.

The governor appoints a student each year to serve as a non-voting student member of the board. The next one-year term begins May 1 and runs through the end of April 2014.

The State Board of Education is scheduled to meet more than a dozen times during the term. Most meetings will be held in Des Moines.

The junior or senior student must be enrolled in a public high school. Applications are due by Feb. 1.
