Please help John Ehret’s We The People team go to Washington D.C.!
We are planning to participate in an amazing educational program to Washington, D.C., this Spring with my friends and classmates from John Ehret High School! Our class has been invited to represent our community and state in the 2014 We the People National Invitational on the campus of George Mason University. The event, sponsored by the non-profit Center for Civic Education, takes place over 4 days this coming April 25-28.
During the program we’ll:
• Participate in Congressional Hearings: Our class will conduct simulated congressional hearings before distinguished judges (ranging from constitutional scholars to state Supreme Court justices)
• Experience a College Campus: Hearings are held on the campus of George Mason University, one of the premier universities in the Washington, D.C. area.
• Explore All That Washington, D.C. Has to Offer: Additionally, for several days we’ll have the opportunity to experience the sights, monuments, and museums of Washington, D.C., such as:
- White House
- Lincoln Memorial
- Capitol BuildingMount Vernon
- Washington Monument
- Smithsonian Museum
• Meet Students from Across the Country: We’ll participate with other teams from around the U.S.
In order to take part in this totally unique program, We need to raise $30,000. So there is no cost for the whole team.
Please help us by sponsoring a portion of our trip. Any contribution you could make would bring us that much closer to this once-in-a-lifetime experience.
All donations are tax deductible and you will be sent a letter promptly for your tax records.
Also, consider asking your employer if they participate in a matching program. This could double your donation!
