PIERRE — The South Dakota Legislature is looking for 22 ambitious college or university students to serve as legislative interns for the 2020 legislative session. The internship positions are open to all college and university students; all majors are eligible. Applications for the intern positions must be filed with the Legislative Research Council by Oct. 11, 2019.

Students will receive $4,750 in compensation for their services and may also receive college credits for their internship.
