Youth Representatives and Senators identify issues important to them, their families, their schools, or their communities and write legislation to improve our state. Delegates present their bills in committee hearings and on the house and senate floors in the Capitol Building in Madison.

Judicial delegates play the dual role of lawyer and justice. Court members prepare for hearings and make arguments before Youth Justices. Each student will prepare a brief and argue their assigned side of a case, plus have an opportunity to serve on the bench and pass judgment on cases.

Media delegates are responsible for reporting, producing, editing, and publishing several news programs each day via newspaper, video, photography, and social media. They interact with all program areas and report their findings to students and advisors at the conference.
