Entry Description

STATEHOUSE (Feb. 7, 2013) – The Indiana General Assembly today congratulated the Brown County Junior High School “We the People: The Citizen and the Constitution” team for being named the highest-achieving middle school in the statewide “We the People” competition for the third-consecutive year. House Concurrent Resolution 10 passed both the Senate and House of Representatives noting the team’s achievements.

“We the People” is a nationwide competition to promote civic advocacy by challenging students in grades four through 12 on their knowledge of constitutional philosophy, current events and court cases.  Brown County’s win qualifies them to represent Indiana at the national “We the People” competition this May in Washington, D.C.

“It is always an honor to meet bright, talented young Hoosiers from our community who take an interest in government and how our democracy works,” Steele said. “I congratulate the team members on their achievements and wish them the best of luck at the national competition.”

To attend nationals, the Brown County team will need to raise $36,000. The team is currently accepting donations, which can be sent to Brown County School Corporation, P.O. Box 578, Nashville, IN 47448 with the notation “We the People.” For more information, contact Coach Michael Potts at mpotts@brownco.k12.in.us or 812-988-6605.
