The Harrison High School Model Congress team had eight students compete at the Harvard Model Congress Conference in San Francisco and brought back five awards.
Prior to the conference, each student was placed in committees ranging from Intelligence to Health Education Labor and Pensions. Each student was also assigned a specific Congressperson of whom they would be acting as during all debate for the weekend.
Students researched their perspective on key issues and engaged in debate with students from across the country, Greece, and Honduras. Students were also faced with the challenge of drafting nonpartisan legislation.
The following students from Harrison received awards for their outstanding performance, personal growth, and inclusivity of other students:
Best Delegate: David Griff - Senate Intelligence; Remy Rabin - House Foreign Affairs; Aidan Lefkowitz - House Oversight and Government Reform.
Honorable Mention: Nutsa Beradze - House Foreign Affairs and Ben Lovinger - Senate Intelligence.
