Wilton Model Congress students recognized in Boston

Six Wilton High School Model Congress students were recognized for their outstanding performances at the 2016 Harvard Model Congress Conference last month.

More than 1,600 students from across the United States ventured to Boston to participate in the U.S. government competition and simulation at the Boston Sheraton Hotel, from Feb. 18 to Feb. 21.

Students worked from the early morning to late at night crafting language, delivering speeches and making compromises in order to see their policies pass their committees and full chambers.

After four days of intense debates and compromises, the following Wilton Model Congress students received the following awards for their ability to formulate original legislation and portray actual U.S. members of the Senate, House of Representatives, the G-20 and a historical simulation of World War I:

  • Jessica Kobsa, Distinguished Delegate Award (Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition, and Forestry).
