Congratulations to Elie Lam from Wichita Falls High School, the Region 9 winner of the 2019 Citizen Bee competition. His teacher sponsor is Mrs. Wendy Presson.                 

The Texas Citizen Bee is a statewide civics education competition for high schools sponsored by Law Related Education/The State Bar of Texas and funded by the Hatton W. Sumners Foundation. The event offers high school students an exciting way to study their social studies material including America’s heritage, the U.S. Constitution, important historical documents, people, and current events, as well as review this material for their high school U.S. History EOC STAAR test.  Participants completed a multiple choice written test and four rounds of oral questions.

Winning students also include: 2nd place – Kennedy Baker (WFHS); 3rd place – Daniel Portillo (WFHS); and 4th place – Isabelle Jennings (WFHS).  Kennedy Baker will represent Region 9 at the state contest in Austin in April to compete for scholarship money.  Congratulations to these outstanding students!
