Kecoughtan Youth-in-Government Club/ Rho Kappa Social Studies National Honor Society
Twenty-six members of the Kecoughtan Youth-in-Government club and/or Rho Kappa Social Studies National Honor Society recently participated in the regional Model judges
Judiciary Program. MJP is a mock trial program that allows students to take on every role in a courtroom proceeding with the exception of judge, as they hold their trials in local courtrooms with sitting judges serving in their real-life role.
The KHS students comprised three "teams" (prosecution or defense) and a panel of jurors. Over the past few weeks, the student attorneys prepared for the trials by developing all aspects of a case including opening statements, direct and cross-examination of each witness, and closing arguments. Meanwhile, the student witnesses became fully immersed in their roles to aid their attorneys in trial preparation.
The teams competed against teams from Windsor High School, winning each of the competitions and earning high praise from Hampton General District Judges Henderson-Stith and Hoffman. In an extension of this program, two of the student attorneys will be chosen to argue an appeal in front of a panel of judges in Norfolk in March.
In late March, thirteen members of the Youth-in-Government club will join about 500 of their peers from across the Commonwealth in Richmond to participate in the 70th annual Model General Assembly. MGA allows students the opportunity to draft and debate legislation designed to benefit Virginia while taking on the roles of Delegate, Senator, Lobbyist, Media Member, Elected Official, or Staffer.
This year, KHS students have drafted legislation related to commercial dog breeding, truth in judicial sentencing, legalization and regulation of prostitution, repeal of the death penalty, and elimination of discriminatory practices in education. They are currently working on solidifying their research into the importance of their legislation and being able to rebut counterarguments that may arise at the Capitol.
In addition to debating legislation while in Richmond, MGA participants will hear from and work with professional lobbyists, media members, General Assembly staffers and current and former Assembly members. In addition, they are expected to be officially welcomed to the state capital by both Governor McAuliffe and Lt. Governor Northam, himself an alum of the Model General Assembly program.
