The student has the option of choosing from a variety of roles: legislator, lawyer, lobbyist, etc... If you are really ambitious, the position of Governor, Lieutenant Governor or Chief Justice are also open for election. As members of the Ticonderoga delegation, you will first travel to Silver Bay for the District Three Conference. Here you will present your legislation (bills) to a committee for debate and revisions. After the district conference, it is on to Albany for the State Conference. This includes a weekend of spirited debate against members from other districts in New York State. This program builds leadership, public speaking and organizational skills... and looks great on a high school transcript.
