    What is the age of your “youth” track at the Annual Assembly?

    I see that childcare is provided up to and including age 12. My son will almost be 11.5 years old at the time of the Assembly … he will be in 6th grade. Could he attend the youth track as he has studied MO State Government and visited the State Capitol over a year ago? We are a politically / public policy active family and I believe he would benefit from the youth track.

    I look forward to hearing from you.

      Hi Christina,
      The youth activities are for grades 6 and up, so your son will be able to attend. Looking forward to having you all at the Assembly! Thank you!

    What is the age requirement for the Adult sessions? Do you have to be 18 to attend? Can high school students attend the adult session if they wish? Thank you.
