Send D.C. Students to We The People Nationals

$2,995 of $3,500 goal

Raised by 47 people in 3 months
For the first time in 10 years, a DC Public School has the opportunity to attend the We The People National Competition held in our own backyard. This is an opportunity for students from around the country to show off what they know about the US Constitution through a series of "hearing" questions where teams of 3 will present a prepared answer and answer follow up questions in front of a series of judges.  http://www.civiced.org/national-finals-2019 

HD Woodson HS is a neighborhood public school in Ward 7, one of the poorest in the city. We are 100% Free/Reduced Price Lunch and over 25% Special Education.  Our students are resilient, innovative and have drive to speak truth to power that can be used to change the world.

We won the city-wide competition and have qualified to attend the national competition. It is very expensive. We won a grant that paid for most of the costs, but we still have $3,000 to go.  These funds will be used to pay the program so we can attend the competition at the end of April.

We have completed our first two days of the competition! The students had a great time with the program and the experience was nothing short of once in a lifetime! The judges had lots of positive comments from "refreshingly honest" to "innovative" and the students left feeling like their hard work paid off and that they want to participate in events like this in the future. Thank you for providing them this once in a lifetime opportunity. We could not have done it without everyone's generosity.

Thank you so much the generosity from this community for my students and I is, quite frankly, overwhelming!

I will be taking these funds and sending them directly to the We The People Program who use a company called World Strides to manage logistics. Anything we don't fundraise I will ultimately fund myself, so there is no doubt that our students will be able to attend this event after all the hard work they have put in and your generosity.

Thank you so much for making this a possibility for them!
