The Arizona We the People State Competition was held on Friday, January 12th 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. Nine high school teams competed in the competition from all across the state but ultimately, at the end of the day, Hamilton High School came away with first place. Hamilton will again have the ability to travel to Washington D.C. to compete in the We the People National finals. Corona del Sol returned as second place champions and third place this year went to Skyline High School.
