Viz Girls Take on YAG
Over the past weekend, the Viz girls Yagged it up at the 75th Annual Youth and Government Lewis Convention, taking place in Jefferson City. While there, the Viz girls wrote and passed bills, argued case law, and ran and won elections. It was an extremely sucessful trip, with two Viz bills being passed, one by Mallory Hanock and Isabella Espana, and the other by Maggie Kiley and Lily Cofer. In the Judicial Area, two Viz girls become finalists, Elizabeth Anyimadu and Eve Trudeaux-Curtis. Over the course of the convention, Emma Williams and Marian Williams worked extremely hard running two campaigns, one for Attorney General and the other for Speaker of the House. Eventually all of their hard worked paid off, and the 2 Viz girls turned into 2 out of the 7 Presiding Officers that help plan and create the convention. The highlight of the weekend though, was not winning the cases, it was not passing the bills or judging the use of case-law, it was the highly coveted YAGSTER. The YAGSTERS theme this year was America, and boy did I feel lucky for the land of the free and the home of the brave after seeing the Viz girls outfits. I personally wore my favorite American Flag suspenders and rocked them for all of the convention to see. After reflecting on the bridges that were built, the elections that were won, the Yagsters that did party, and the bills that were passed, I can wholeheartedly say this was one of my favorite conventions, and I cannot wait for the next one.
