We The People Team Competes In National Tournament

Ava Vaita

Our Hamilton “We The People” team took second place in the Arizona We The People competition. Due to covid concerns, there has been a debate over whether to go further and go to the national We The People competition in Washington D.C. Because of all of the worries about the coronavirus the national competition will be held virtually instead of in person. The students will have an entirely new set of questions and will have to prepare 6 written statements for each group with 14 papers in total per group. Our nine participants at Hamilton who are going to compete in the nationals are Jihan Kahn, Michael Chen, Candice Decuna, Shrika Kantala, Claire Mullings, Ramya (Meena) Nishtala, Shriya Shah, Manvi Harde, and Samatha Lugo. Make sure if you see our We The People team at Hamilton to congratulate them on their amazing work in making it to nationals!!
