Fall One Day Recap


On Saturday, October 8th, Midwest JSA held its second ever Fall One Day at the Chicago Union League Club. Midwest Governor Janani Kalyan welcomed delegates to the first Midwest convention of the year, and State Senator Omar Aquino served as the keynote speaker. Senator Aquino talked about his own involvement in politics and encouraged JSA-ers to get involved in politics whether on a local, state, or national level. Afterwards, the delegates dispersed to several rounds of debates ranging from topics such as the War on Poverty and the impact of Andrew Jackson’s presidency. After a break for lunch, the delegates reconvened for further debates. Shortly after, Midwest JSA held a Mock Presidential Debate, featuring the current presidential candidates as well as several others such as the Roosevelts and Harambe; the Mock Presidential Debate proved to be one of the highlights of the convention. At the same time, other delegates competed head-to-head in a Kahoot about the current presidential candidates. The convention concluded with a DEFCON and a vote on who the delegates would vote for in the upcoming election if they could. The vote was overwhelmingly for Clinton. Afterwards, the delegates said their goodbyes and left the Union League Club, all the more ready for Fall State.
