The Center is pleased to announce the release of the 2016 We the People: The Citizen and the Constitution National Finals hearing questions (link opens a pdf file). Good luck to this year's participants!
ConSource has created correlations linking lessons of the We the People text with primary sources available at ConSource.org. The lists for Level 3 (high school) and Level 2 (middle school) are available along with the United States Constitution for Kids, which offers the original text of the Constitution alongside unbiased translations that are easy for students to understand.
The Center would like to acknowledge the generosity of the American Judges Foundation, which recently gave a grant of $2,500 to support the We the People program. In her gracious remarks, Judge Catherine Shaffer expressed “warmest wishes and sincere thanks for all the amazing work We the People does in advancing civic education for our high school students nationwide.”
Maryland state We the People champions from Boonsboro High School met with Governor Larry Hogan on January 29. They were also presented with resolutions on the floor of the state House and Senate. The students and teacher Ashley Wisner will travel to the We the People National Finals this April to compete against classes from across the country in a test of their knowledge of the Constitution.
