Wauwatosa East’s American Public Policy Special Emphasis (APPSE) Team is Heading to DC for the “We The People: The Citizen and the Constitution” Nationals in April!
In addition to working hard to prepare for the national competition in Washington, our team of 25 students also has the tremendous task of raising over $40,000 in the weeks ahead to ensure that our entire team may travel together to the national hearings. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity for us as individuals and a team to represent Wauwatosa and the State of Wisconsin. Please consider making a donation to help make this academic endeavor possible for this Fabulous Team. Any amount is a huge help!!!!
Along with your donation, please cheer on the team member who you are supporting! This shout out to the team member will mean a lot to the team as they work very hard to make all their supporters proud.
What is “We The People: Citizen and the Constitution” Nationals? “We The People: Citizen and the Constitution” is a nationwide competition based program which simulated Congressional Hearings. Tosa East’s APPSE class is 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 the Bill of Rights and modern day implications.
In preparation for the national finals, Tosa East’s APPSE class learned about government and studied the Constitution and Bill of Rights. The six unit groups each prepare four-minute opening statements in response to three congressional hearing questions. During the national finals, over 1,200 students from 56 classes testify before a total of 72 judges, in panels of three. The judges are professors of history, political science, law, and education; members of the legal community; and others with knowledge of the Constitution and Bill of Rights
To qualify for the national finals, Tosa East is a "wild card" class.National finals will takes place over three days of competition in hearing rooms on Capitol Hill. At the national finals, each unit testifies on two hearing questions during the first two days of competition. The classes with the ten highest combined scores advance to the final round on the third day. The top ten places are determined by combining the scores from the first two days and a weighted final round score
