Welcome to the Inaugural We the People National Invitational!

This event is a once in a lifetime experience for you and your classmates. Not only will you connect with other
students throughout the nation, your classroom lessons and hard work will come to life as you participate in the
congressional hearings and explore and experience Washington D.C. I am confident that you will make lasting
memories enjoying all that our nation's capital has to offer.

Good luck to you and your classmates!
