Kelley Brown’s students at Easthampton High School won the Massachusetts state We the People title January 28 during the state finals competition at Harvard University.
“These kids all along were just really engaged with the questions,” said Peter Gunn, who served as a judge. “They were clear, concise and specific. They were on and they were feeling it.”
The victory qualifies Easthampton to compete in the 25th Anniversary We the People National finals April 28-29 at George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia. The top-ten teams will then participate in a final round of competition on April 30 in Washington, D.C.
