Model Congress Debaters Gain Top Honors

This Saturday, 35 students from the St. Hilda’s & St. Hugh’s History Club attended the Packer Collegiate Model Congress competition. Together with 460 students from around New York, our seventh and eighth graders embodied the role of legislators from both houses of Congress, working to have their bills passed into law.

During closing ceremonies, four of our legislators received the highest awards of the day, the Golden Gavel and the Honorable Mention Award, for their extraordinary skills of debate. Congratulations to these award recipients and to all of our participants.
