Wauwatosa West We the People 2018

$13,999 of $70,000 goal

Raised by 189 people in 5 months
Created January 12, 2018
Wauwatosa West High School has won the We the People State Championship of Wisconsin for the 11th consecutive year. The team won the State Competition on January 6th and will represent Wisconsin at the National Competition in April in Washington DC.

The We the People competition has students performing as "experts" in a Mock Congressional Hearing format where they break up into six groups and research 18 different questions. Students will craft an opening statement for each questions timed for four minutes. Then the judges will ask six minutes of follow-up questions where the students will take stances on the questions using historical examples, constitutional citations, Supreme Court cases, current events etc. to defend their arguments.

The students will need to raise over $70,000 in order to ensure that all students will be able to make the trip out to Nationals. We are asking for financial assistance by those who value civic education and engaged young adults. Assistance will mean students can focus more time and attention on preparing for the academic side of things and less time on the fund raising requirements.

Please offer your name and what student your donation is on behalf of so we can ensure we get you a proper thank you and any tax receipt information. 

We thank you for your consideration and any support you can offer our hard working group of students.

Hey all, I just wanted to update all those who check in on this website, and share that we have raised over $64,000 so far. We are getting closer to our goal. Thank you to those who have helped contribute and thank you to those who can continue to help spread the word around and help us reach our goal. Our final payment isn't due till the middle of April so we still have a month to finish off this "Herculean" effort.

We are about a month into our fundraising efforts to try and reach $70,000 by the middle of April. Our total donated on Go Fund Me has already exceeded the two totals from the previous years. And we have raised over $37,000 so far...IN JUST ONE MONTH!!!!

Thank you to those of you who have donated so far. We greatly appreciate it. We like to send out our thank you letters and tax receipt letters after our return from DC in order to offer up a beautiful picture of our class in front of The Capitol, share what we were able to experience and offer our placement with any recognition we may have earned. So we haven't forgotten about those who have donated, we will get something out in May for the reasons stated above.
