What is the Mock Article V Convention?

The Mock Article V Convention is a competition between school delegations simulating a Convention of States called by Congress under Article V of the Constitution for the purpose of considering and proposing amendments to the U.S. Constitution. Each delegation will propose an amendment to the constitution and present it to the other delegations, answering questions, defending against objections, and asking for support.

A MAV team consists of 3-5 students from your school. The team should select a captain who will register the team. Once registered a team may select a topic for their proposed amendment.
