Model Senate 2019


The 51st annual Mansfield Model Senate was held March 22nd in the Mansfield High School Media Center.  24 delegates vigorously debated 9 bills. Model Senate is a unique part of the Mansfield High School Social Studies curriculum.  This program exposes students to the legislative process and provides them with the opportunity to legislate in both school-wide and regional meets.  Every junior is responsible for creating, researching, and defending a bill.  One bill is then chosen by each class to attend the Mansfield Model Senate.  The Mansfield Model Senate then chooses delegates to represent Mansfield High School at the Hockomock League Model Senate that will be held at Oliver Ames High School on April 8th and 9th.  Students will compete against other teams from nine member schools.
