On Saturday, Feb. 7, the state finals of the national “We The People” competition took place at the Northwest Career & Technical Academy in Las Vegas.

Eight Nevada high schools, including Incline High, participated, and roughly 30 high-profile attorneys, judges, political leaders, educators and volunteers judged/scored the competition. Judge Nancy Saitta provided the keynote.

Reed High School came in first; Incline came in second; and Reno came in third, meaning Reed will move on to Washington, D.C., to represent Nevada in April in the national competition.

The “We the People” program is the most extensive education program in the country on the principles and values embodied in Constitution and Bill of Rights.

Sponsored by the State Bar of Nevada and overseen by the Center for Civic Education and funded by the U.S. Department of Education, the program is implemented in every congressional district in the United States.
