Milford's We the People team advance to finals
The teams compete in front of judges, providing answers to questions they were given in advance, and then fielding impromptu follow-up questions from the judges. It is the follow-up questions that reveal what the students know, said Alcox, because they have to think on their feet.
Seven of the students had to double up and learn two units, a hefty challenge given their other responsibilities, said Alcox.
Students at John Stark Regional High School in Weare had a similar challenge with only nine students on the team, said Alcox. The team from Nashua North had about 30, while Merrimack had 15, he said.
"John Stark was clearly in the lead when we broke for lunch," said Alcox, "but we had a break and talked about the things we needed to improve. By the second round, the kids had found their groove and just kept getting stronger."
With the state win in hand, the students will travel to the nationals in Washington in April.
