Youth Legislature is a program for students in 8th grade that promotes and encourages youth leadership, participation, cooperation and teamwork among peers, while introducing them to the legislative process.
MBS 8th grade students receive classroom instruction and participate in a two-day mock legislative session at the Old State Capitol. This event occurs in March. During the mock legislative session, students will elect a Governor and House and Senate officers. They also sponsor, debate, and pass and fail bills, which they have drafted during the school year. They also lead and serve on legislative committees and speak publicly before an audience. The event gives students the confidence they need to go on to participate in leadership roles in high school and in their community.
