Thank you for considering volunteering for We The People State Competition! We couldn't do it without you!
To volunteer for 2022, please check back.
Thank you for volunteering to serve as a judge at a We the People hearing or competition. To a large extent the quality of a simulated congressional hearing is dependent upon the expertise and demeanor of the judges. Please review the We the People textbook(s) and resources listed below. To suit local needs the We the People program allows for variations in hearing implementation at the school, congressional district, state and national levels. Therefore, procedures may differ slightly depending upon your state and the grade level. Consult your We the People State Coordinator for local procedures.

Facilitators are who make the Competitions run smoothly and on time. They have the main responsibility of playing host to each hearing, helping students feel calm and confident, beginning and concluding hearings and moving judges to their next hearing on time.
