What is CONA?

CONA stands for "Conference On National Affairs" and is a ten-day, nation-wide conference held in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina. CONA participants author individual proposals of national or international scope and then champion these proposals through a competitive debate process. CONA delegates are selected from participants of the Model Legislature & Court program, through a highly competitive application process. 

Applications are due December 5th via reggo. Interviews will be held during T&E II and the MLC. 

This year, CONA will be from June 23rd to July 3rd.
