Youth in Government

Grades 8-12

Interested in discussing important current issues and simulating state government? Then Youth in Government (YIG) is for you!  In YIG, students in grades 8-12 pick an area of interest and then assume the role of legislator, court of appeals lawyer, newspaper reporter, lobbyist, or other government position. Students prepare legislation, debate bills, write court briefs, or dozens of other things as they prepare for their particular role. The program culminates with 4 days of model assembly in January at the Minneapolis Hilton and St. Paul Capitol complex.  For more information, please contact Christine Bye at
