We the People – 26 Years in NH

Pictured are students who participated in the We the People: The Citizen and the Constitution district competition, held in December 2012, at the Legislative Office Building in Concord. The state championship was held Jan. 11, immediately after Bar News press deadline. Visit for an update.

Participating in the state finals will be three teams – defending champion Milford High School and two teams from John Stark Regional High School. A third group of students from a Vermont high school are participating as guests.

The NH Bar Association has coordinated the We the People program in NH for 26 years, including the recruitment of dozens of lawyers and judges each year who participate in the evaluation of the students’ presentations. This nationally acclaimed civic education instructional program enhances students’ understanding of the institutions of American constitutional democracy while allowing students to discover the contemporary relevance of the Constitution and Bill of Rights.

The competition features a simulated congressional hearing in which students "testify" before a panel of judges. At the high school level, schools participate in regional and state competitions, making presentations and answering questions posed by panels of government and political leaders. The top performing high school team attends the National Competition, held in April in Washington, D.C.

Supreme Court Rule 42(9) requires all NH admitted attorneys to notify the Bar Association of any address change, home or office.
