The students will go on to Washington, DC from April 27-May 1, 2007 to take part in the national competition. They are the recipients of a $4,000 grant from a combination of the NH Bar Foundation, NHBA, and the Center for Civic Education to help with their expenses. The school is fundraising for an additional $3,000 so that the entire team can travel without a cost to the students.
