High Schools to Try and Unseat Findlay in State Civics Competition

One week from today, Findlay High School will try to make it 12 titles in a row at the annual We the People: the Citizen and the Constitution competition. Findlay has represented the Buckeye State at the We the People National Finals for 11 consecutive years.

Nearly 150 students will participate in the January 25 event at the Thomas J. Moyer Ohio Judicial Center, home to the Ohio Supreme Court, in Columbus. Besides Findlay, the competing schools are: Archbold, Bishop Hartley, Fostoria, Northmont, St. Henry, Van Wert, and West Carrollton.
Judges, attorneys, state legislators, college professors, and other community leaders from across Ohio will judge the competition by evaluating the students’ knowledge and understanding of the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights and their importance, impact, and underpinnings.
We the People is a nationally acclaimed civic education program, helping students understand the history, philosophies, and evolution of our constitutional government. Upon completion of the classroom study, the students participate in a competition taking the form of simulated Congressional hearings.
Good luck to all involved!
