Paris High School finished as runners-up to North Lamar at the new UIL Region 8 Student Congress in Pittsburg. Senior Shelby Wilson was named an alternate to Class 4A State Congress held in January 2017.
Congress is an individual contest modeled after the U.S. Congress. Students research bills and resolutions, prepare speeches, caucus in committees, debate legislation, and vote on measures they have examined. They follow parliamentary procedure.
