Delegates, we have room for more Junior Delegates to attend our Convention.  Please invite your children and grandchildren to participate and learn about our political process.  Jr. Delegates need to be between the ages of 12-17 and there is no cost to attend.  They will be led by an adult through a “mock” convention and even work on their own platform issues.  These delegates are also welcome to attend District and State conventions and again, there is no cost.
