Middle School Roles
All student participants will select one of the following roles while attending the assembly:
- State Representative or Senator
The primary role for students attending the assembly, State Representatives and Senators (chambers are assigned by program staff after registration closes) will rank, debate, and vote on bills in the House or Senate.
- Bill Sponsor | 1-5 per bill
Representatives and Senators are encouraged, but not required, to sponsor a bill with up to 4 of their peers (5 sponsors total). Sponsors must submit their bills prior to the assembly, and will present the bill in committee before it is debated by the full House or Senate.
In addition to these roles, students can apply to serve in a Supporting Officer role, or run as a Presiding Officer candidate.
