Kaylee Meador competed in UIL District Student Congress at Cooper High School in Abilene taking home 1st in 1A schools and 2nd overall against 1A-6A schools. The District Student Congress program is an individual contest, in a large group setting, that models the legislative process of democracy, specifically, the United States Congress. Within this mock legislative assembly competition, contestants draft legislation (proposed laws and position statements) submitted to the tournament, and they research the docket of bills and resolutions dealing with real-world social and political policies prior to the contest to prepare their speeches. At the tournament, students deliver formal discourse on the merits and disadvantages of each piece of legislation, and vote to pass or defeat the measures they have examined. Parliamentary procedure forms structure for the discourse, and students extemporaneously respond to others’ arguments over the course of a session. Judges evaluate contestants for their research and analysis of issues, argumentation, skill in asking and answering questions, use of parliamentary procedure and clarity and fluency of speaking.
Kaylee also acted as Presiding Officer for the afternoon session. She advances to the UIL State Meet held on the UT campus in Austin January 11-13. Students making it to finals will compete in the Super Conference Sessions in the Capitol building. Good Luck Kaylee.
