TEENS TAKE OVER THE CAPITAL
Each year, months of hard work and countless man hours culminate with the State Conference. This Conference hosts select delegates from all districts in Texas, multiple program sections and invite them to showcase their political skills and learn from their peers. Delegates participate in one of five program sections at the High School State Conference: Legislative, Judicial, State Affairs Forum, Media, and Governor’s Cabinet/Lobbyists.
This year the Dallas YMCA won 5 elections in the following offices:
Lt. Governor - Alex Searles, McKinney YMCA
Attorney General - London Jones, Coppell YMCA
Chief Justice - Sebastien Caballes, Oak Cliff YMCA
State Affairs Chair - Nikash Haranpalli, Town North YMCA
Print Editor - Auyauna Aird, Oak Cliff YMCA
Congratulation to all our outstanding teens who competed. The Dallas Delegation showed well at the conference with many of our branch delegates and teams winning multiple awards. It was very exciting to see a first time team from Waxahachie placing in the top 5 County Court, a first time Bishop Lynch team placing in top 5 District Court and a first time top 3 placement for JBS Law Magnet.
