Twenty-three students from Westminster Academy traveled to Boston, Massachusetts, for the 34th Annual Harvard Model Congress.
Harvard Model Congress (HMC) is a program hosted by Harvard in which high school students from across the country have a chance to spend four days as members of the United States “government.” Students are assigned committees and deal with real political issues going on today.
In their committees, students from schools across the nation debate, write, and pass bills. Students from Westminster Academy delegation also participated in the Presidential Cabinet, National Economic Council, National Security Council, Supreme Court, and the historical Constitutional Convention Committee.
