Marlboro HS Model Congress Shines!
Marlboro High School’s Model Government team participated in a four-day government simulation with high schools across New Jersey and the tristate area. Twenty-nine students (29) participated in Congressional and Senatorial committees, the Supreme Court, lobbying groups and current and historical cabinet “situation rooms.” For the fifth time in six years, Marlboro High School’s delegation was recognized as one of the top performers with the “Best School Delegation” honor; it is the third consecutive time that Marlboro High School has won 1st place. The most competitive schools attending the conference have dedicated classes to prepare their students for the conference. Our students met at 7:15 am on a weekly basis since September to compete against these schools. In order for a school delegation to win, each delegate is evaluated based on a number of factors including but not limited to speaking and writing skills, forging diplomatic relations with others and influencing the direction and scope of discussion in a meaningful way.
