Youth from throughout the state are selected as delegates from student councils, government classes or YMCAs and spend months researching for the event. These students then may go through an election process for leadership positions in the House, Senate, as well as the executive branch. They work in chambers to introduce, debate, and vote on proposed legislative bills which have been written by the youth legislators in their hometowns.
The Model Assembly is held during the winter of each year after local Youth In Government groups and delegations have been formed. Delegates to the conference elect youth officers for the model executive, legislative and judicial session. Nominating speeches, balloons, and countless pieces of campaign literature are distributed to the delegates. Elections occur by individual ballot.
