Welcome to the Northern California Junior State!

NorCal is the oldest state of JSA, a national, nonpartisan, student-run, debate and politics organization. It stretches from the northern border of California to San Luis Obispo County in the south, with hundreds of members in chapters across the state. Three weekend conventions per year give students the opportunity to get involved with debate, politics, and the JSA organization, making new friends along the way.
