The Legislative Branch of Youth In Government’s State Assembly is made up of a number of delegates who serve as one of the many Senators, Representatives, Supporting Officers, Pages, or Presiding Officers.
Legislative Delegates who wish to be a Representative or a Senator will serve in one of three Chamber Levels.
Your Chamber Level assignment will be based on your grade and the number of years you have participated in Youth In Government:
|1st Year||2nd Year+||3rd Year+||4th Year+|
|Sophomore||Bowen||Sullivan||Sullivan or Williams*||Sullivan or Williams*|
Delegates who qualify for the Williams and Sullivan chambers may be “bumped” up or down to a higher/lower chamber level based on their local performance and preparation, in combination with the quality of the submitted legislation.
Participants of the Jr. YIG program who attend a Jr. Assembly will be able to enter as a second, third, or fourth year delegate.
*3rd or 4th year Sophomores may be considered for a bump to the Williams Chambers based on the quality of their legislation and space available.
All Freshman and any Sophomores who have not previously attended the Youth In Government State Assembly.
Any 2nd year+ Sophomore participant, any 1st year Junior, and any 1st or 2nd year Senior participant. Delegates of the Jr. YIG program who attend a Jr. Assembly will be able to enter into the Sullivan chamber as well.
Any 3rd year+ Junior participant and any 3rd or 4th year+ Senior participant.
