We The People’ program to showcase civic education

Students from 12 Indiana high schools and middle schools will again be showcasing their knowledge of the U.S. Constitution in the annual “We The People” competition.

This national event which promotes civic education is organized in the Hoosier state by the Indiana Bar Foundation.

The state championship is scheduled for Dec. 17 - 19 in Indianapolis. Indiana’s newest Supreme Court Justice Loretta Rush and Indiana Senate President Pro Tempore David Long will be the guest speakers.

During the competition, the students will testify before panels of judges comprised primarily of attorneys, members of the judiciary, and community leaders, and answer questions about the U.S. Constitution, the Bill of Rights and American history. They must display critical thinking, research, teamwork and public speaking skills as well as content knowledge.

The winners will represent Indiana at the national finals in Washington, D.C., next spring.

  1. Put aside all the marijuana concerns, we are talking about food and fiber uses here. The federal impediments to hemp cultivation are totally ridiculous. Preposterous. Biggest hemp cultivators are China and Europe. We get most of ours from Canada. Hemp is as versatile as any crop ever including corn and soy. It's good the governor laid the way for this, regrettable the buffoons in DC stand in the way. A statutory relic of the failed "war on drugs"

  2. Cannabis is GOOD for our PEOPLE and GOOD for our STATE... 78% would like to see legal access to the product line for better Hoosier Heath. There is a 25% drop in PAIN KILLER Overdoses in states where CANNABIS is legal.

  3. This article is excellent and should be required reading for all attorneys and would-be attorneys, regardless of age or experience. I've caught myself committing several of the errors mentioned.

  4. Bill Satterlee is, indeed, a true jazz aficionado. Part of my legal career was spent as an associate attorney with Hoeppner, Wagner & Evans in Valparaiso. Bill was instrumental (no pun intended) in introducing me to jazz music, thereby fostering my love for this genre. We would, occasionally, travel to Chicago on weekends and sit in on some outstanding jazz sessions at Andy's on Hubbard Street. Had it not been for Bill's love of jazz music, I never would have had the good fortune of hearing it played live at Andy's. And, most likely, I might never have begun listening to it as much as I do. Thanks, Bill.

  5. The child support award is many times what the custodial parent earns, and exceeds the actual costs of providing for the children's needs. My fiance and I have agreed that if we divorce, that the children will be provided for using a shared checking account like this one(http://www.mediate.com/articles/if_they_can_do_parenting_plans.cfm) to avoid the hidden alimony in Indiana's child support guidelines.
