UE Hosting "We The People" on November 4
Posted: Friday, November 1, 2019
More than 180 middle and high school students will be on the University of Evansville campus on Monday, November 4 to take part in the annual We the People competition. The We The People: The Citizen and the Constitution program aims to promote civic competence and responsibility among Indiana's elementary, middle and high school students.
This year marks the first time UE has hosted this competition, which runs from 9:45 to 11:45 a.m., followed by a 1:00 awards ceremony in Eykamp Hall within Ridgway University Center. The competitors have been busy studying the U.S. Constitution throughout the semester, and Monday's winners will advance to the state finals in December.
Participating schools include Castle, North, Jasper, Christ the King, Helfrich Park, Thompkins, and St. Philips.
