National Invitational 2023

national finals
The 2023 We the People National Invitational will be held virtually from April 20-21, 2023.

Middle and high school classes may elect to attend the National Invitational after participating in a simulated congressional hearing at the school, district, or state levels during the 2022-2023 school year.

National Invitational teams may participate from their home state, or they may choose to travel to Washington, D.C. If a team decides to travel, virtual hearing rooms will be arranged at the students’ hotel. Travel, lodging, and tour arrangements for classes are organized through WorldStrides. The Center for Civic Education manages all other aspects of the National Invitational. If you want to compete in the National Invitational, complete this Intent to Compete form by February 21, 2023.
