~ Taken from the Burton Mail, dated Saturday, January 23, 2010. Page 5
UK Youth Parliament candidate Adam Clarke is busy preparing for the upcoming elections by spreading the word in schools.
The 15-year-old will talk to pupils at Paget school, in Burton Road, Branston, on Wednesday and at his own school, Abbot Beyne, in Osborne Street, Winshill, about the role of the youth parliament.
He is confident that promoting himself through schools will give him a "great chance" in the elections, which begin today.
Adam has also been given the opportunity to take part in work experience with Burton's Conservatives parliamentary candidate Andrew Griffiths.
He will accompany Mr Griffiths to London for a day to take a look around parliament and the campaign offices to learn how they work.
Adam said: "I am really excited about the work experience."
"Andrew has been a great help by giving me advice on campaigning and how to promote meself."
Adam's farther Lee Clarke said he was "absolutely thrilled" for his son
"Adam puts so much effort in, by emailing local politicians. It's encouraging to get such a positive response."
