The Arizona We the People State Competition was held on Friday, January 10th at Mesa Community College. The We the People program simulates congressional hearings where students testify as constitutional experts in front of panels of esteemed judges; often legislatures, judges and lawyers. Ten high school teams competed in the competition from all across the state but ultimately, at the end of the day, Mountain View High School reclaimed their first place title. Mountain View will have the opportunity to travel to Washington D.C. to compete in the We the People National finals. Our second place winners, Corona del Sol High School, will also have the ability to join them this year as Arizona has received a Wild Card allowing Arizona to bring two teams. Hamilton High School took third and Gilbert Classical Academy took fourth place. Congratulations to all who competed and Good Luck to those who get to compete in D.C.
