A Lebanon High School student was among those recognized in the statewide finals of the Constitution Project.

The First Amendment Award for outstanding performance in Journalism was won by Lebanon High School senior Cade Winfrey for the second year in a row.

Missouri’s Constitution Project is a competition in which high school students gain experience in the fields of journalism, crime scene investigation and trial advocacy. Individuals from 12 schools earned awards in this statewide competition, now in its fifth year, that is sponsored by the Supreme Court’s civic education committee.

“I am optimistic about the future of our state and our country because it is apparent, based on these students’ participation, that they understand the importance of protecting our constitutional rights,” Missouri Chief Justice Zel M. Fischer said during a ceremony Wednesday evening.
