Maine South - Mr. Andrew Trenkle
Foundation Award - $1300

Maine South Constitution Team students will be competing at the National finals in Washington D.C. as part of the Center for Civic Education’s We The People competition. Established by former Chief Justice Warren Burger to commemorate the bicentennial of the Constitution in 1987, the competition features thousands of students, and teams from every state compete for the national title. This competition is a simulated Congressional hearing on various aspects of US History and Political Science. The students have spent the year preparing for this competition after capturing the state title in December. The Constitution Team consists of a select group of Advanced Placement students that immerse themselves in history, political science, and law throughout the year. The Foundation is very pleased to contribute $50 per student to offset a portion of the travel and lodging expenses.
