Denver East Students Win Nationwide Championship on the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights
Months of study and hard-won victories at the congressional district and state levels ended this week for about 1,200 high school students representing 50 states and the District of Columbia in the national finals of We the People: The Citizen and the Constitution, a competition on the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights. After three days of simulated congressional hearings, during which students were required to apply constitutional principles and historical facts to contemporary situations, the class from Denver East emerged as the national champion, with Amador Valley High School, Pleasanton, California and Grant High School, Portland, Oregon taking second and third place, respectively.
