American International College’s (AIC) 81st annual Model Congress will convene virtually on Thursday, April 15 at 6 p.m. In lieu of the traditional weekend conference, AIC’s Model Congress is hosting a free-to-attend Zoom emergency session.
In 2021, the tradition will continue, albeit differently. This year, AIC’s Model Congress will convene with an emergency session only. Due to the pandemic, the committee sessions typically held throughout the weekend-long event are suspended. Any high-school student can register to attend. Zoom information will be provided to all participants closer to the date of the event. Since this is an emergency-style debate session, participants will not know the topic of the legislation until minutes before the session begins to simulate a true emergency session in Congress.
Since the purpose of this event is to uphold the tradition of AIC’s yearly Model Congress and have fun, no awards will be presented this year. High-school students interested in participating are invited to visit aicmodelcongress.org to learn more and/or register, or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for additional information.
