The academic competition, which tests students’ knowledge of the Constitution, took place May 10 – 11, 2024.  Nova Middle’s 35-student team competed against 14 teams from eight states to take the top honor.


During the competition, students engaged in discussions with scholars, law and history professors, attorneys, and government officials in six mock congressional hearings about the Constitution and its application in the past and present. Students had to recite from memory landmark Supreme Court cases and apply them to present-day issues. 

Nova Middle earned the opportunity to compete in the national competition after placing second in the state in February.

MEDIA NOTE: As the students toured Washington, D.C., on Wednesday, May 15, they paused to watch the virtual award presentation from their tour bus.
