Members from across Texas travel to Austin to represent their CTE programs to our State Legislatures at the Capitol. Training includes communication, parliamentary procedure, advocacy training, and House Rules for students and advisors. Student leaders gain access to the Texas House floor where they perform mock legislation and debate proposed bills, followed by meetings with their Texas Representatives. 

This event is held every year in conjunction with SkillsUSA Week:
