Judges Meet
To a large extent the quality of the We the People National Invitational experience  for students and teachers is based upon the expertise and demeanor of the judges. 

Please review the resources on this webpage. In addition, a packet will be available for you with more information at the National Invitational information desk in the lobby of the Mason Inn Conference Center & Hotel on Friday evening.
