Judge Mathias recognized for civics education

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrint

Indiana Court of Appeals Judge Paul D. Mathias received the Indiana Bar Foundation’s William G. Baker Award Dec. 12 for his work with civics education. Judge Mathias was cited for his work with the We the People program at the state level and in the 3rd Congressional District in Northeast Indiana.

He started working with We the People when it began in 1987 and annually recruits volunteer attorneys and civic leaders as judges for the 3rd Congressional District competition.

The We the People program is sponsored by the Indiana Bar Foundation. Students from around the state recently traveled to Indianapolis for the program’s mock congressional hearings competition, which wrapped up Tuesday.

Munster High School won this year’s state high school competition. The high school won last year and placed 8th in the national competition. In five of the last six years, the team representing Indiana has placed in the top 10 nationally.
