What is the Legislature?
The legislature at Model Assembly consists of six different bodies. Four of them, Humphrey House and Stassen Senate, as well as Sibley House and Ramsey Senate, are available for 9th and 10th graders while the other two bodies, Sanford House and Knutson Senate, are available for 11th and 12th graders. Prior to Model Assembly, students have the opportunity to write a bill about a state issue that is important to them. At the conference, they can debate their bill and get it all the way to the Youth, or Youth Lieutenant, Governor – one of the highest honors in Youth in Government.
