Sadie Kavalier, a senior at South Tama High School, has been selected as a winner of an all-expense paid educational trip to Washington, D.C. She is the daughter of John Kavalier and Dr. Polly Hineman, rural Tama. Sadie participated in the “Know Your Constitution” project sponsored by the Young Lavwyers Division of The Iowa State Bar Association. The “Know Your Constitution” project is designed to enrich students’ understanding and appreciation of the Constitution. The students participating in the project were required to familiarize themselves with Constitution related issues. Each participating student completed a quiz and an essay challenging the knowledge of our nation’s founding document. After careful consideration of the more than 1,000 entries, one hundred students and their teachers were selected to attend a luncheon in their honor at the West Des Moines Marriott Hotel in West Des Moines on Jan. 9, 2015. From the one hundred finalists, five students and their teachers were chosen by a random drawing to attend the Close Up Foundation’s week-long education work session in Washington, D.C. Feb.15-20. The work sessions are designed to develop a deeper understanding of govern-ment and the political process. This program is sponsored by The Iowa State Bar Association with funding from the Iowa State Bar Foundation, IOLTA and the ABA Young Lawyers Division.
