Students from across Kern County put their knowledge of the United States Constitution to the test Saturday at Golden Valley High School.

In the end, the Arvin High School students were crowned 2018 We the People regional champions.

With the win, AHS will represent Kern County in the state championships Feb. 2 in Sacramento.

Centennial High School finished as champions of the 23rd District, but were runners up to Arvin High School in overall scoring.

CHS still has a chance to earn a wildcard bid to participate in the state championships.

Each team individually presented testimony in two rounds of six mock congressional hearings. The teams were judged by committees that consisted of community scholars and civic leaders.
