On January 21, 2019, Rep. Scott Delano introduced House Concurrent Resolution 40, and the resolution was referred to the Rules Committee in the 2019 Congressional Session. Resolution is linked below.
Six high schools from Mississippi's four congressional districts are being selected to participate in the Model Mississippi campaign. In their participation, not only will young Mississippians have a say in their state's future, but they will also have the opportunity to learn about how their government works. Poll results will be used when evaluating resolution edits.
Searching for Support
During the summer, Model Mississippi will work to gain additional political backing and media coverage. Support within the chamber is especially important for 2020's session.
Reconvening with the Recruits
During the fall semester of the next school year, Model Mississippi will reconnect with participating schools to update them on the progress of the campaign.
2020 Congressional Session
This session will showcase the input of the campaign through an improvised resolution. Depending on how the resolution travels through the chambers, it could result in a 21st-century representation of Mississippi in the National Statuary Hall in Washington, D.C.
