On January 9-12, 2020, 38 Orono students in grades 8-12 attended YMCA’s Youth in Government: Model Assembly Session 2020. Our students debated bills, passed proposals, and sat on the jury for their court cases.
We had several students serve for elected and appointed positions. Anne Guidera (11th grade) was elected to be the GOVERNOR for 2021! This is the first time an Orono delegate has ever been elected Governor.
This program gives students the opportunity to learn and debate about important issues while meeting their peers from around the state of Minnesota.
