Rep. Morris judges “We the People” competition
STATEHOUSE — State Rep. Bob Morris (R-Fort Wayne) was a judge in today’s local We the People competition for middle and high school students. The competition was held at the University of St. Francis campus.
“I was thrilled to be involved with a competition that challenges students to use their constitutional knowledge,” said Rep. Morris.
The We the People competition is designed to promote civic competence and responsibility among upper elementary and secondary students. The program is actively supported by members of Congress, state bar associations and foundations, and other educational, professional, business, and community organizations across the nation.
Since the start of the We the People program in 1987, more than 30 million students and 90,000 educators have participated the study of the course.
“As a father of young children I always try to emphasize the importance of education with them. It was great to see these students diligently work to enhance their own education, while learning more about the foundations of democracy,” said Rep. Morris.
