Sheridan students win statewide 'We The People' contest in Laramie

(Laramie, Wyo.) — Sheridan High School students took first place at State We the People competition today in Laramie. "The (students) did an outstanding job and would like to thank the Sheridan community for all of their support!" Advanced Government Teacher Tyson Emborg said today. According to statewide organizer Matt Strannigan, the Sheridan students came in first, Cheyenne Central was second and Laramie was third. Jackson, Glenrock and Casper Kelly Walsh teams received honorable mentions. Students rehearsed in public at the Sheridan Fulmer Library in mid-January. During We the People events, students are asked about the U.S. and Wyoming Constitutions, the documents' long history — even before this country was founded — and the documents’ application to present-day situations. Nationals will be held April 23-27 in Washington, D.C. *Feature photo: Sheridan students in Laramie today. h/t SHS Booster Facebook / Pitchengine Communities* #dally #news
