Statesman Debate offers the next big thing in College Model Congress and High School Model Congress!
This is NOT your typical Model Congress. Ours emphasizes high policy and substance, not the sheer mechanics of the US Congress and the intricacies of parliamentary maneuver. Toward providing the “next big thing,” the agenda is a single major public issue and the participant is elevated in important ways, treating him or her as if an actual member of congress who is facing a major present challenge. He or she does not therefore submit any bill or other on any topic. Instead, benefiting from a combination of panoramic and issue-specific briefing, they submit a relevant, timely, high policy bill. The sum of activities of everyone involved is a magnificent and exhilarating learning experience!
This activity takes place in two phases. The first phase precedes our conference. In this first phase, you, the incoming member of Congress, are briefed well in advance of the conference. Occurring several weeks or even several months ahead of time, this briefing can serve multiple purposes—(1) preparing you for our conference, (2) preparing you for a third-party conference and (3) helping with your school work.
The second phase is the Model Congress Conference.
