While the JCL functions on a state-wide level most of the time, it belongs to a much larger national organization that spreads across the entire United States and into several other countries. The National JCL is most known for planning the National Convention, which is a week-long event that is held in a different state each year. This convention is by far the most anticipated event of the whole year, as it features fascinating colloquias, huge spirit competitions, intense certamen competitions, and so much more. Currently, the Minnesota delegation only brings students from the single MNJCL chapter at Eagle Ridge Academy to the National Convention, but we hope to soon be one of the biggest delegations there!
