National Invitational: May 10-11, 2024

The We the People National Invitational is held virtually each spring. Middle and high school classes may elect to attend after participating in a simulated congressional hearing at the school, district, or state levels during the 2023-2024 school year.

Information for Judges & Volunteers

The success of We the People competitions depends on the generosity of volunteers who serve as judges, facilitators, and timers. Community leaders, academics, attorneys, judges, public servants, elected officials, education professionals, program alums, and so many others are integral to every program, whether in person or online.
Thank you for taking time out of your busy schedules to join us! It is a pleasure to welcome back those of you who are experienced “veterans” and a delight to welcome those joining us at the National Invitational for the first time.
