The team after their win

The team and family members

On Saturday, January 27th, EHS won the Massachusetts State We The People congressional hearing competition against public and private schools from across Massachusetts. The 21 students competed in a congressional hearing simulation for which they became experts on certain aspects of the US Constitution, testifying in front of a panel of judges including lawyers, law students, teachers and researchers from across the state. With the help of local attorneys, Stephen Linsky and Nancy Sykes, student teacher Tim Wood and many other EHS alumnae, we beat out 5 other schools and will be competing in Washington D.C from April 27 to May 1. The students will prepare new statements for the national hearing questions over the next few months, and Ms. Brown and some parents will immediately begin a fundraising campaign.
