The FHS We The People team competed at the University of Maryland in National Finals from April 22 to April 25. However, getting there has been a long road for the group.

“[During a competition] we get dressed up in awesome suits and go in front of three judges and read a prepared statement that we wrote. Then they ask us follow-up questions on the paper and anything related to the subject of the paper,” senior Andrew Landeen said.

The mission statement of the organization states “The primary goal of We the People is to promote civic competence and responsibility among the nation’s elementary and secondary students. The program consists of classroom studies and a mock congressional hearing where students testify on a variety of Constitutional issues.”

This year, the FHS team placed within the top 10 schools in the nation at the National Finals competition. The team placed sixth nationally overall.

“We The People has been the most exciting and interesting educational experience of my life. I’ve literally learned so much about not just the government, but myself and the world around me. The skills I have built are going to benefit me for the rest of my life, and the friendships we’ve formed are going to last forever,” said senior Emma Getz.
