Revised Judicial Case and Memo Now Available

Hello YG Participants! The time for District Conferences has almost arrived.

Judicial participants: After reviewing your questions about this program year’s trial case, a revised case has been published along with a memo responding to various concerns. Please be sure to look these over prior to your District Conference and incorporate any new information into your practices.

Additionally, District Registration is now open for ALL YG participants. You or your club advisor should be registering you for your District Conference, including selecting your appropriate Legislative program section (if applicable). If there are issues with registration, please contact your District Director.

We are excited to see all of your preparation and skills on display at the District Conferences. Keep up the great work and enjoy your conference!
