Submit Congress Legislation

We want to hear from you! Any NSDA member student may now submit legislation to be considered for the 2022 National Tournament Docket (multiple submissions welcome). The legislation will not be tied to a student, school, or district. Our goal is to open the door to more submissions, more diverse topics, and more student input. Legislation is due February 15. Learn more.
