The Unaffiliated Student Program is for high school students in grades 9-12 who wish to participate in the Nebraska POL program, but their school or homeschool network are not participating. Students who register to be a part of the Unaffiliated Student Program will participate in five online sessions and compete with peers under the guidance of teachers from the Nebraska English Language Arts Council.
Important: Students are only eligible to participate in the Unaffiliated Student POL Program if their school or homeschool network is not already registered. Restrictions may apply if more than one student from a school or network wishes to participate.
