FREDERICK COUNTY, VA- Students in Frederick County took a special trip away of class for a crash course in local government.


Students from Milbrook, Sherando and James Wood high schools teamed up for a hands-on scavenger hunt in local government offices.


The students used cell phones and flip cameras to decode government-related clues hidden in the offices they will be working in this semester. The goal is to get the students accustomed to the government offices before they begin the jobs.


The event, known as the "Amazing Local Government Race," is part of the Frederick County's Service Learning Program, where students research case studies during their first semester and intern with the government during their last semester of high school.

In previous years, students have researched the success of probation and parole research, and ambulance and emergency service fees.


The seniors will have final presentations before the Frederick County Board of Supervisors in May.
