Centennial Model Congress

Words: Vaishnavi Mahalingam

From February 17 to 21, Centennial’s Model Congress, comprised of 16 members, participated in a conference in Boston, Massachusetts. The conference invited about 1,500 students from all over the country to debate key public policy issues and simulate the legislative process. The conference also presented students with the opportunity to visit Harvard University’s campus.

In Boston, the delegates played the roles of actual members of Congress, debating issues within committees, drafting and proposing legislation, and voting on legislation in mock House of Representatives and Senate sessions. Some delegates participated in programs such as the IMF, or International Monetary Fund, and the Presidential Cabinet.
