Registration for 2024 Winter Congress is now open! This year, we will host three Winter Congress conventions at our nation's capital, Washington, D.C. If you are new to JSA, this is an opportunity to experience the U.S. legislative process in action. Prior to attending Winter Congress, you will write bills to be considered by your peers. The bills will be reviewed at Winter Congress during committee hearings.

Registration Process

This year, we are offering two registration options: chapter and individual. If you attend as a chapter, your teacher advisor and chapter president can register you. If you would like to participate as an individual, you can register through JSAConnect. To do so, you must have or create a JSAConnect account and be a dues-paid member.
