High School Delegates Debate at Princeton Model CongressEach November, a group of high school students travel to Washington, D.C. to participate in the Princeton Model Congress (PMC) where government and political classroom lessons are used in real-world applications.

For four days, students assume the roles and responsibilities of elected officials and draft legislation to address contemporary issues.  

Model Congress provides high school students with the unique opportunity to participate in simulated legislative sessions modeled after the United States Congress. 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 views on the challenges currently facing our nation. 

Students attending the conference are assigned a seat in the House of Representatives or the Senate where they conduct research and draft bills that they hope will improve life in the United States.  Delegates are required to create, prepare, and give a persuasive speech, then engage in a debate to get their bills passed into law.
