Each program cycle, Texas Youth and Government delegates elect nine high school officers and three middle school officers at the District and State conferences to provide youth leadership for each delegate in the state of Texas. Positions such as Youth Governor, Secretary of State, and even state leaders for the different sections are available to run for.  The Y requires all candidates running for these positions to adhere to the Y core values:  caring, respect, responsibility, and honesty. These delegates operate as state officers at both the District and State conferences.  Additional guidance, candidate criteria, the election process, and resources can be found on the Youth and Government website at this link: Elections
