Tahoma High places 7th in national civics competition

A team from Tahoma Senior High School placed seventh in a national competition that focuses on students’’ knowledge of the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

Tahoma High participated as Washington state’s champion in the contest known as “We the People: The Citizen and The Constitution.”

It competed against teams from 45 other states and the District of Columbia.  The teams participate in simulated congressional hearings, in which the judges test the students’ knowledge of subjects such as how the values and principles in the Constitution have shaped American institutions and practices.

Grant High School from Portland, Oregon, placed first.

Tahoma High, located in Covington, has won the Washington state title many times.  The school has also placed in the national competition several times, including 10th in 2012.
