2019 Civics Games
More than 100 students from 25 schools participated in the inaugural Wisconsin Civics Games, which included four regional competitions on Feb. 23, 2019, and the state finals March 29, 2019, at the Wisconsin State Capitol.
During the Games, students heard from several local officials, newspaper editors, state legislators, a state Supreme Court chief justice and the governor. They even received a congratulatory letter from U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor.
After months of preparation and two days of competition, the team from Platteville High School was named the first-ever Wisconsin Civics Games champion. Each member of the team was awarded a $2,000 scholarship to a Wisconsin college or university.
