We the People

Out of a total 2,160 possible points over the course of the full-day We the People state championship, held at the Legislative Office Building in Concord on Jan. 8, the reigning champs from Milford High School defeated the team from Hollis/Brookline High School by a mere two points. It was the closest competition in the 29-year history of the NH Bar Association-sponsored program. Because New Hampshire is what is called a “wild card” state this year, both teams will have the opportunity to travel to Washington, DC, in the spring for the national competition.

Howie Zibel served as chief judge and emcee at the We the People district and state competitions in December and January. He has never missed a We the People hearing in 29 years. What keeps him coming back? “It’s just the excitement of seeing the next generation learning about the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. Pass it on, you know? That’s the name of the game, and We the People makes me believe we’re in good hands.”
