On December 15, the BICEN students, who are enrolled in the Advanced Placement United States Government class, continued their legacy by winning the states competition hosted at Central Connecticut State University.

The class is divided into six units, each corresponding to a constitutional issue. Each of the units presents a speech and is subjected to questions from judges at the state competition. The team competed against four other schools and emerged as the victor, continuing Trumbull’s three year win streak at states and securing a spot to represent Connecticut at the national competition in Washington D.C.

The class went through rigorous preparation for the competition, starting by writing three separate speeches to answer three questions dealing with political philosophy. They presented their speeches at four separate events, including “Night with the Experts.”
