We the People (Emphasis on the W)
Congratulations to WCTA’s We the People team! We the People took first place in their district contest overall this past weekend for the second year in a row out of 34 schools! Units 3, 4 and 6 also got Unit Awards, meaning they took first place in their sector! The whole team will continue on to compete at State on February 4th at our very own school, West Career and Technical Academy.
The We the People program promotes a high understanding of constitutional principles and the values on which they were founded. The program has been around since 1987, and over 28 million students since have participated. Mrs. Casolari coaches WCTA’s team, and evidently, she does an incredible job at it!
When Senior Dani Stoilova was asked why she joined the class, she said, “I’ve always been interested in government and feel that more students should be as well. The class has allowed me to develop such a deep understanding of such complex topics, and I wouldn’t trade it for anything.”
The lesson to be learned from this class? Hard work always pays off.
Dani said, “If you’re passionate about something and you put in enough time and effort, it will work out in the end.”
