Pop quiz, hotshot: What East Grand Rapids team has won 15 state championships since the year 2000?

If you said “We the People,” you’re right. The constitutional law class and competition is one of our district’s most successful teams. 

The Foundation began funding EGRHS “We the People” back in 2001, helping pay for the team’s trip to the national championships in Washington, DC. Since then, the Foundation has helped send the team to nationals many times, most recently in 2019. 

For the last several years, the “We the People” national championships have been held virtually, but that hasn’t stopped our team’s success. They won last year’s state championship and we look forward to helping send the team back to Washington, DC in future years.

Thank you, Foundation donors, for making this possible. You can help support our mission of investing in educational enhancements for all our students on our Donate page.
