Annual Leadership MessageAs supporters, volunteers, donors and alumni of Washington Youth & Government, you have many reasons to beproud of the tremendous accomplishments of our student participants, the great work of our program staff and theincreased growth and quality of our programs.In partnership with the Washington State Legislature, the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction, schoolsand YMCAs statewide, we have been able to offer financial assistance to fourteen new Youth Legislature delegationsand Mock Trial teams over the past two years. We have also made great progress in reaching out to Washington stu-dents with diverse social, economic and cultural backgrounds, and serving students east of the Cascades.The growth in number and diversity of student participants has also increased our need for support, and our programvolunteers have met the challenge with enthusiasm. For example, over 80 families throughout Thurston County hosted Lucy Helmstudents during the 62nd Youth Legislature, and 120 judges and attorney raters facilitated trials during the Mock Trial Board ChairState Competition. We have also added eight new members to our volunteer Board of Directors, making it the largest,and most engaged Board in program history. Despite the challenging economic climate, thanks to your steadfast sup-port, we successfully met our annual fundraising goal this year. We owe all our supporters a debt of gratitude.Student delegates to the 62nd Youth Legislature continued the program’s legacy of innovation and creative thinkingas they successfully implemented their own trial run of a Rank Choice Voting (RCV) election system. The RCV wasconducted along with the standard election process, giving delegates the opportunity to compare the two side by side.Our student delegates to the Conference on National Affairs were once again recognized as a premier delegation andseveral students received recognition for their outstanding bills and debating skills.This year, 651 students across the state took on the roles of attorneys and witnesses in a fascinating case involving therole of teachers in preventing student violence in schools. Our four highest rated mock trial teams represented us ex-ceptionally well again in two national competitions. We also partnered with the Washington State Bar Association topresent Rick Nagel, former teacher/coach of Franklin High School’s Mock Trial team, with the Flame of DemocracyAward, recognizing his contributions to our state’s national reputation for excellence in mock trial programming.Many of our Board members have a deep commitment to Youth & Government because they themselves participatedin Mock Trial or Youth Leg as high school students. One of our newest board members, Joe Jenkins (2005 Youth Gov-ernor), is spearheading our efforts to increase our outreach to program alumni. We recently held our first “alumnisocial” in Seattle, and we have created a Facebook page to connect with our program alums. Look for more alumnievents soon!We look forward to another year of growth and high quality programs for students across the State of Washington. Janelle D. NesbitWe are tremendously grateful for your support and partnership. Executive Director

YMCA Mock Trial DISTRICT When I first tried out for Mock Trial as a freshman, I had no idea what I was getting myself into. I had a vague understanding of what CONVENERS Mock Trial was and I was interested, but mostly I just wanted to get out of study hall. After the first week, however, I began to realize that Honorable Robert Lewis, Mock Trial would be more than the average extracurricular activity. Mock Trial Program Chair Three years later, I can say that Mock Trial has easily been the Clark County highlight of my high school career. ~ Honorable Charles Snyder, In Mock Trial, I have found something that I am passionate about. I Honorable Martha Gross & know from talking to Mock Trial participants from all over the state Honorable Leon Henley and all over the nation that I am not alone. It is this ability to inspire Whatcom County passion that makes Mock Trial what it is. Whether it is a passion ~ for law, a passion for acting, or maybe just a passion for argument, Honorable Linda Krese, you would be hard pressed to find a student in Mock Trial who isn’t Snohomish County passionate about something. It is this passion that makes the Mock ~ Trial world so real. Without it, we would just be a bunch of kids Honorable William Downing, talking about imaginary people allegedly doing imaginary things that King County may or may not be against the law. With it, Mock Trial is an activity ~ where I have built many of my closest friendships and had some of the Honorable Stephanie Arend, most amazing experiences of my life.

YMCA Youth Conference on National Affairs When I arrived at CONA I did not know what to expect and was extremely nervous. At first I wasn’t sure I wanted to take on the role of Commit- tee Clerk, but the experience gave me confidence that would propel me through the rest of the conference. My chair was extremely nice, it was great to make a friend so fast. Presenting my proposal was scary, but very worth it. I ended up being CONA delegates enjoyed a trip to the American Museum of Sci- really proud of myself and all of the work and revision I did to present it ence and Energy and the Baker Center for Public Policy prior to arriving at CONA effectively. Unfortunately once the larger sessions came along I got a little shy and didn’t debate much, but I listened very attentively. Argumentswere very interesting and I absolutely loved watching all of the debate and hearing differ-ent views. I was astounded by the high level of speaking skills the delegates demonstratedas well as their passion regarding the issues.I enjoyed listening to the closing speeches made by the presiding officers and hearing howthe conference had affected each of their lives. It was then, and during the final closingceremony, I realized what an impact this experience has had on my life.

This summer, six students from the Washington Youth & Government Program represented our state Douglas Duncan at the 42nd Annual YMCA Youth Conference on National Aﬀairs at the Blue Ridge Assembly in Black Washington State Mountain, NC. Students wrote proposals on issues ranging from a nation wide mandate of electronic Delegate medical records to a complete ban on federal bailouts to private sector companies. Washington held its long standing tradition of receiving recognition as one of the conference’s Outstanding Delegations and individual delegates also received honors during closing ceremonies. For the ﬁrst time in conference history a Washington State alumnus, Alex Mech, served as one of the six Presiding Oﬃcers.
