We the People team still in transit to D.C.
Updated on: 05.03.13

Brown County Junior High School's We the People team is set to compete at nationals Saturday morning, but right now, the team's main concern is just getting to Washington, D.C.

The 22 team members and 11 adults are presently stuck at Indianapolis International Airport after their flight was canceled, according to an emailed prayer request from Nashville United Methodist Church.

BCJHS is scheduled for its first hearing in front of the judging panel at 9:40 a.m. Saturday, with sessions lasting until noon Saturday and picking up again Sunday morning. The local team also competes Monday from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. before learning results Monday night.

The Brown County community helped to raise more than $30,000 to enable the students' trip to the first junior high national competition.
