A group of 24 Spearfish High School students are planning a trip to Washington, D.C. in April to compete in the national "We the People" competition. These students, in Pat Gainey's Constitution class, won the state competition in January. On Monday, March 23, The Lawrence County Republican Central Committee contributed $1,000.00 to this project to help them in their endeavor to raise the necessary funds for the trip.
Pictured in the photo are Mr. Gainey, receiving the check, Margaret Sager, chairman of the Lawrence County Republican Party, Jim Seward and Judy Jelbert, Lawrence County Committee Woman, both members of the executive committee, along with the members of the group who will be attending the national competition.
Lawrence County GOP challenges area organizations to match this donation to help these students afford their travel-related expenses.
