Boonsboro High School’s team in the Maryland We the People Simulated Congressional Hearing program finished a close second to Randallstown High School from Baltimore County in competition last month in Annapolis.  

Boonsboro was representing the 6th Congressional District.  

The competition involves a simulated congressional hearing in which students testify before a panel of judges, demonstrating knowledge and understanding of constitutional principles.  

The students evaluate, take and defend positions on relevant historical and contemporary issues.

We the People is a program that promotes civic competence and responsibility among students, helping them understand the history and principles of the Constitution, and the contemporary relevance of the Constitution and Bill of Rights.

Boonsboro’s team consisted of seniors Erin Scally, Chuck Zang, Ben McNamee, Jacob Reinhart, Zac McGee, Carlie Anderson, Dominick DiMercurio, Megan Deckert, Rodney Flora, Moriah DeMartino, Amy Moore, Jaclyn Fiola and Taylor Gigeous. Junior team members were Becca Smith, Aurelie King, Brandon Poholchuk, Jillian Gaulding, Lauran Barrett and Lana McDowell.
