  Mr. SWALWELL of California. Madam Speaker, I rise to recognize the 
students of Amador Valley High School (AVHS) in my congressional 
district, who competed in the national We the People competition held 
right here in Washington, D.C. I am proud to report that its We the 
People competition team took second place out of 56 participating 
groups.
  The We the People competition is held annually. Teams come to 
Washington, D.C. to compete in mock congressional hearings that test 
the high school students' knowledge of U.S. history and the 
Constitution. I am thoroughly impressed with the participation, 
dedication, and knowledge of AVHS students regarding our history, 
government, and political system. The students displayed exceptional 
commitment and love of history and civics. They are truly a model for 
students across the country.
  I also want to recognize their teacher, Stacey Sklar, who worked 
tirelessly to provide guidance, organize the team and prepare the 
students in winning the statewide competition this winter and place 
second in the national competition. And I also want to commend Cheryl 
Cook-Kallio for her resounding efforts as the California state 
coordinator for the We the People program.
  Madam Speaker, again I congratulate AVHS and their students from the 
We the People program. I want to take this opportunity to list the 
members of the team: Shurthi Chandran, Esha Chawla, Sandra Chen, Emma 
Garman, Prerita Govil, Robin Hwang, Kate Inman, Kavya Katragadda, 
Quincy Kumfert, Matthew Lyou, Gabrielle Mirsky, Trent Moca, Nicole 
Park, Andrew Pereira, Vanshaj Singhania, Jessica Stubbs, Emil Tu, Evan 
Yang, Zoe Yao, and John Yi.
