RHS Model Congress

Model Congress provides high school students with the unique opportunity to participate in simulated legislative sessions modeled after the United States Congress. For four days, students from all over the country become the nation's elected leaders, discussing foreign and domestic policy questions and drafting legislation to address contemporary issues. Delegates learn to express their own views on the challenges currently facing our nation. Model Congress is designed to help the youth of today become the responsible citizens and leaders of tomorrow.
