A leadership forum on Capitol Hill that gives delegates the opportunity to practice their public speaking skills. Each delegate delivers a speech centered around their leadership experiences, goals, and passions.

During the simulation, delegates will act as lead negotiators for the six countries involved in the North Korea nuclear negotiations (i.e., United States, Russia, South Korea, North Korea, China, and Japan).
