About the We The People Competition: From December to February, We the People high school classes compete at state competitions throughout the country. Each spring, the state winner and wild card classes are eligible to participate in the We the People National Finals in the Washington, D.C, area at the National Conference Center in Leesburg, Virginia. The competition culminates with a top-twelve final round to determine the national winner. In addition, the National Invitational is held at the National Conference Center, allowing middle schools to have the same rich academic experience of presenting prepared statements on constitutional topics and responding to questions from adult judges.
Kimberly Maxson-Rushton has been a judge since 2003 and now serves on the Board of the Nevada Center for Civic Engagement.
