The Westminster Christian Academy “We The People” Team celebrated a first-place victory at the state competition in Jefferson City in January.
We the People is a year-long program purposed to promote civil competence and responsibility among the nation’s elementary and secondary students. Westminster students spend first semester studying the main elements of the U.S. government and the second semester focusing on various facets of the U.S. Constitution in preparation for the state competition.
Senior Parker Briden said he is proud of his teammates for their excellent work and dedication.
“I was so excited to see the whole group working together and putting months of hard work to good use,” Briden said. “Everyone has put in so many hours and so much brain power, and I think it really showed.”
The team will go on to compete at the national competition in Washington, D.C., in late April.
