In order to foster a rewarding and challenging program, the District Conference allows students to qualify for the right to participate in the State Conference. District Conferences are one-day, qualifying, regional competitions that students and mentors look forward to as great warm-ups for the much larger State Conferences several months later.


Each year, months of hard work and countless man-hours culminate with the Texas Youth and Government State Conferences.  These Conferences host select delegates from all districts in multiple program sections and invite them to showcase their political skills and learn from their peers. By coordinating the efforts of volunteers, staff, and delegates, we hope to make each year’s State Conference better than the last, fostering a unique and healthy competition for all.

Our Middle School (Junior Youth and Government) State Conference takes place the last weekend in January of each year, and our High School  State Conference takes place the first weekend in March.  Attendees can review the YG Pre-State Conference Handbook.
