Brown Rudnick Charitable Foundation Sponsors the We the People Constitution Challenge; 2012 Winners Announced

Boston, MA, June 11, 2012 – The U.S. Capitol Historical Society and the We the People Consortium announced the honorees of the 3rd annual We the People Constitution Challenge, an essay contest co-created and underwritten by the Brown Rudnick Charitable Foundation. The competition is open to Washington, D.C. middle schools participating in 2011-12 We the People Constitution Tours, which also received support from the Brown Rudnick Charitable Foundation through a Relationship Grant.  The tour is for 8th grade public and public charter school students in the District and is centered on the U.S. Constitution and its three branches. The Challenge is a contest where teachers compete to demonstrate what activities they have done throughout the school year with their students to further reinforce what the students learned about the Constitution on the tour.

Rebecca Evans, Vice President, Membership & Development, U.S. Capitol Historical Society, said, “The Challenge activities this year were especially imaginative, encouraging students to think critically and draw upon what they had learned about the Constitution on the tour and in the classroom.  We are grateful for the ongoing support of organizations such as the Brown Rudnick Charitable Foundation for helping us bring this educational program to D.C. students.”

The honorees of the 2011-12 We the People Constitution Challenge are:

  • Overall Winner
    Cesar Chavez Public Charter School
  • Honorable Mention Awards
    Shaw Middle School
  • Columbia Heights Educational Campus
    Maya Angelou Public Charter School

All of the winning schools will receive plaques that will be given out at school assemblies next week. Additionally, Cesar Chavez will receive a $1,000 award for their school provided through a special Community Grant from the Brown Rudnick Charitable Foundation.

Brown Rudnick Charitable Foundation’s Relationship Grants are awarded annually to tax-exempt organizations for the purpose of addressing inner-city educational needs within the geographic boundaries of Boston, Hartford, New York City, Providence, and/or Washington D.C.
