Members of the We the People constitutional debate team from Howell High School  have arrived in Washington, D.C. for this weekend’s national championships.

This is the first time the Howell team has qualified for the national finals, which are being held Saturday and Sunday at George Mason University  and Monday in Congressional hearing rooms on Capitol Hill.

More than 1,300 students  from across the U.S. are expected to take part in the competition, which tests students’ knowledge on constitutional issues in a format similar to a Congressional hearing.

Local residents can keep up with the team Washington activities by visiting its Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/howellwethepeople. The Top 10 qualifying teams will be posted online at http://new.civiced.org/top-10 after 10 p.m. Sunday.
