Competition

We the People competitions in Virginia are for middle and high school We the People teams. Schools are encouraged to hold in-school competitions as practice for regional and state competitions.

Participation in a regional competition is required to compete at the state level. Schools may elect to compete in one of four regional competitions, held in December. The top 10 scoring middle schools, and top 10 scoring high schools, in the regional finals will be invited to compete in the state competition. The winning high school class will represent Virginia at the We the People National Finals in April.

VA Civics relies on volunteers to make each competition successful. If you are interested in volunteering as a judge, timer, or facilitator, please send us an email and let us know!
