Mariah Norton, Seth Balke, Abbie Haupert and Stephanie Struthers of Collins-Maxwell High School were finalists in the Iowa State Bar Association’s "Know Your Constitution" Project. One hundred finalists were selected from the more than 1,000 students across the state that entered. These finalists were honored at a luncheon held at the West Des Moines Marriott Jan. 10. This year’s keynote speaker was the Honorable Thomas Waterman, Justice of the Iowa Supreme Court.

The "Know Your Constitution" Project is designed to enrich students’ understanding and appreciation of the Constitution. The students completed a quiz and essay over questions about the Constitution. The students attended the luncheon with their government teacher, Wes Stover.
