CSA New Tech among 14 schools to compete

Columbus Signature Academy — New Tech High School will be among 14 high schools from Indiana participating in a competition next month that will test students’ knowledge of the U.S. Constitution.

A team from CSA New Tech will participate in the We The People competition Dec. 10 and 11 at Crowne Plaza Union Station, 123 W. Louisiana St., in Indianapolis. The state finals event will measure knowledge of the U.S. Constitution, the Bill of Rights, government and American history.

In the competition, students go through simulated congressional hearings as experts on constitutional subjects and current events and testify before panels of judges and answer questions related to their topics. The program teaches elementary, middle and high school students about American democracy and a contemporary application of the U.S. Constitution.
