HHS We the People Team Takes State

Highland's team hopes to represent New Mexico at nationals in April.

Highland High School's We the People team took state at the annual mock congressional hearings competition on Dec. 14, which earned the team a chance to go to nationals in April.

The team is made up of 21 juniors and seniors who spent the semester specializing in various points of constitutional law, including foundation and creation of the U.S. Constitution as well as challenges the document faces now and in the future. The team was divided into six units.

The competition i s administered by the Center for Civic Education. Judges included attorneys, judges, former judges and a state senator. Each team unit gave speeches on a topic and fielded questions from judges.

Teacher Bob Coffey worked with the team all semester.

Students have to raise $1,800 per person to attend the competition in Washington, D.C.
