Gonzales Middle School Student Council members participated in Youth Legislature in Baton Rouge on March 20-21.

Youth Legislature is a middle school program that introduces students to the legislative process. They receive classroom instruction and participate in a two-day mock legislative session at the Old State Capitol. Students elect a Governor and House and Senate officers. They also sponsor, debate, pass and fail bills which they have drafted. They lead and serve on legislative committees and speak publicly before an audience.
