E-mail Print
Incline High School is headed to Washington, D.C., to compete in the national "We the People" competition after winning the Nevada state title Saturday.

Incline outperformed Bishop Gorman High School (Las Vegas), College of Southern Nevada High School-West Charleston campus (Las Vegas), Reed High School (Sparks) and Canyon Springs High School (Las Vegas) at Saturday's competition at the State Legislature in Carson City.

The national competition takes place in Washington, D.C., in April.

The "We the people" program teaches high school students about the U.S. Constitution, as well as knowledge of American rights and responsibilities.

"We the People: The Citizen and the Constitution", sponsored by the Center for Civic Education, is a yearly competition for American high school students.

Saturday's competition was styled as a congressional hearing, with each team divided into six units, each composed of three to five students. Each unit focuses on a particular area of Constitutional interest — from the philosophical underpinnings and Constitutional Convention to modern day implications.
