Youth Legislature is a spring event, much like Model UN, that culminates in a 4 day conference in downtown Nashville. At Youth Legislature, students create a bill, much like one created by a TN state legislator or senator. These bills require intense research, dedication, and a passion for state government. Students will debate their bill at the TN state capitol. Along with legislators and senators, students may also play the part of justices, lawyers and other government officials.
Both Model UN and Youth Legislature allow students to meet other students from all over the state of Tennessee. “All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy,” so fun is also a part of these conferences. Dances, games, eating out, staying in a hotel, and learning to personally responsible are all parts of the conferences. Interested students should contact Mrs. Howard and ask her how to get involved.
