Countless hours of research, endless late-night study parties, and too many cups of coffee burned into the hopeful hearts of 24 students this past semester, all preparing to dominate in rigorous competition.

We The People – an exclusive and competitive government club at Hamilton – snagged District Title in their last competition of 2018 and went on to make their debut at State only two weeks into the New Year. Divided into 6 groups of 4 students, each unit had the job of researching and compiling information into essays on specific influential topics (such as immigration, etc.) to present in mock congressional debates. The workload is notoriously intensive.

In past school years, Hamilton’s We The People team has established itself as a force to be reckoned with. This year’s team has proved no different – our students put immeasurable amounts of work and dedication into their craft. ‘Weople’ member and Hamilton Senior, Taylor Smith, notes that she easily spent “over 200 hours studying, writing, meeting with [her] group, and practicing.” She says, “All in all, I spent the majority of my first semester and Christmas Break working for this class.” The sheer level of commitment needed to succeed in such a time-consuming class is admirable, and our students put their all into it.

In the end, Hamilton’s team walked away from this year’s State Competition with the 2nd place trophy. Although it’s uncertain whether they will advance to Nationals, ‘We The People’ has made its mark with an amazing accomplishment. This year’s Weople students have created beautiful friendships and memories that will last them a lifetime.
