Tracy Press: Exec. Dir. Powerful Beyond Measure

Call for More Volunteers: 2012 DC We the People Finals

Next week on February 21 and 22, the Center for the Constitution at James Madison's Montpelier will host the We the People DC High School and Middle School Citywide Finals at Georgetown Law School. We are writing to ask for your assistance at one or both of these events. We still need a few more volunteers to help these exceptional students. Can you help?

The Center for the Constitution at James Madison's Montpelier will host these competitions, which serve its mission by engaging students on their knowledge and understanding of the history and principles of our Constitution and Bill of Rights. As the DC We the People Coordinators, we would be honored if you would invest your time as a volunteer for DC's incredible students.

As you may recall, the We the People competition takes the format of a simulated congressional hearing, which involves middle and high school classes presenting testimony and answering questions about historical, political, and constitutional issues before a panel of three judges acting as a congressional committee. To make the competitions a success, we need judges, timers, and facilitators for the two citywide finals competitions.

About the Citywide Finals on February 21-22, 2012: The Center for the Constitution would like to thank Richard Roe of Georgetown Law for his support. Both State Finals will take place in classrooms at Georgetown Law. The Center will cover breakfast and lunch for the volunteers on each day of the competition. Volunteer trainings will take place on each morning of the event.
Citywide Finals Dates:

Tuesday, February 21: 8:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
DC We the People High School Citywide Finals
Georgetown Law School
Wednesday, February 22: 8:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
