New London students head to state
Adamovich, Kedinger advance in Wisconsin Civics Games
In an effort to encourage high school students to develop an interest in government and public service, the Wisconsin Newspaper Association Foundation sponsors the annual Wisconsin Civics Games.
For the second straight year, New London High School juniors Wyatt Adamovich and Jack Kedinger have qualified for the state competition.
Adamovich and Kedinger participated in a virtual competition on April 14, testing their civic knowledge against 41 other teams from 24 other school districts across Wisconsin.
After competing four rounds against four different Wisconsin schools in the regional competition, they earned a return trip to Madison.
The Wisconsin Civics Games state competition will be held May 12.
New London High School will square off versus schools from across the Badger State.
Members of the winning team will each be awarded $2,000 toward tuition to a Wisconsin college or university of their choice.
The scholarships are funded in part by the support of the University of Wisconsin System.
The Wisconsin Newspaper Association Foundation and the Wisconsin Civics Games are a natural fit – newspapers were founded to inform communities and encourage public dialogue.
Working to increase civic understanding and to foster responsible citizenship are core missions of both the Wisconsin Newspaper Association Foundation and New London High School.
