Two eight teams representing Helfrich Park STEM Academy performed very well at the 2013 We The People social studies competition held at the Crowne Plaza Hotel and Convention center this past Tuesday, December 17, 2013. A team five students from first period were crowned State Champions in Unit Six while students from period nine earned a Third Place Team Title for their combined scores of units one through six. The competition ties in a number of areas from the broad topic of social studies: civics, history, law and the constitution are all studied and discussed extensively. Students must defend their positions on a topic utilizing the aforementioned areas for facts, opinions and supporting their positions on topics and questions directed to them from a panel of judges. The students were coached by Mrs. Amanda Antey. Congratulations!
