Former Illinois governor Rod Blagojevich will be giving some young people a real-life lesson in politics.

The Chicago Tribune reports Blagojevich is scheduled as the keynote speaker at the annual Junior State of America Midwest convention Saturday in west suburban Oak Brook.

JSA is a national debate and civics organization for high-school students.

Naperville North High School senior Anastasia Golovashkina, 17, says she invited Blagojevich because "he embodies the real aspects of real-world government."
