Press Release

Washington, D.C. – Today, Representative David Price (NC-04) formally announced his nominees for appointment to the U.S. Air Force Academy, the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, and the Naval Academy.

“Nominating promising young leaders to our nation's Service Academies is one of the most rewarding aspects of my job as a congressman,” said Price. “Their commitment to public service at such a young age is truly admirable.”

Young people who are interested in attending one of the service academies may apply directly and also may seek a nomination from their US Representative and US Senators. After receiving nominations from Members of Congress, admissions authorities at each institution determine which nominees will receive appointments. Rep. Price invited all the Fourth District nominees and their families to a reception in their honor at his Raleigh district office earlier this week.

Students interested in a nomination should contact Robyn Winneberger in Rep. Price's Raleigh office (919-859-5999) in the spring of their junior year in high school. More information on the nomination process and eligibility requirements is available on Rep. Price's "Service Academy Nominations" webpage.
