Team SISD students headed to state for legislative contest
Three Socorro ISD students will compete in the UIL Congress state contest Jan. 7-9 in Austin.
Team SISD swept the ESC Region 19 competition in November at Canutillo High School. The students advancing to state are Bryan Liston, Pebble Hills High School, who came in first place; Caitlyn Acevedo, Americas High School, who was second; and Ethan Lopez, another Trailblazer, earned third place.
“Congratulations to all of our coaches and students,” said Stephanie Carrasco, coordinator of advanced academics for the district. “Our students were well prepared to present their affirmations and arguments for proposed legislation. The speeches were eloquent and the presenters were confident. Our students represented Team SISD proudly.”
The UIL Congress event is a competition that models the legislative process of democracy, specifically, the United States Congress.
