The We the People Middle School Showcase is a great year-end culmination of our students’ 8th grade social studies program at St. Paul School. The Showcase is held annually at the Ohio State University Fawcett Center. This is an opportunity for our students to work together in teams and compete against other middle schools from around the state while sharing their government knowledge in mock congressional hearings. Six St. Paul School teams of five students each arrive with two prepared four-minute statements on particular U. S. government questions and issues. They then have an opportunity to defend their positions before “panels” comprised of professionals from various walks of life – attorneys, courtroom judges, Ohio Supreme Court justices, and educators. A remarkable – and unforgettable -- learning experience for our young adults!
