Harvard Model Congress is the largest government simulation conference in the world. Throughout the conference held in Latin America, students will have the opportunity to debate, share, learn, and
compromise on pressing issues, while taking on the positions of the most important global leaders. Students will leave with increased confidence, public speaking and leadership skills, understanding of the workings of democracy, ability to find common ground among disparate views and a greater appreciation for and comprehension of current events. HMCLA awards students who stand out in the conference: excellence in commitment and enthusiasm, in delivery and persuasion, in knowledge of the issues at hand, in the level and frequency of participation, in leadership, excellence in representation of role, in authorship, creativity of ideas, in cooperation with others, and excellence in debate and argumentation.
