Article V Amendment

High School Scholarship Competition

11th and 12th grade Texas high school students from

public * charter * private * home

schools are eligible.

JULY 11, 2018    ***ANNOUNCEMENT***

GW Bridge Academy is proud to announce its plans to organize a scholarship opportunity for young Americans in Texas!  

The purpose of this competition is to encourage young Americans to consider their ability to influence the outcome of their future in a constitutional republic.  You have a voice and you have the freedom to determine how your government will serve the nation.  This competition is designed to encourage you to propose an amendment to the US Constitution -one that you deem necessary to the preservation of the founding principles set forth in the Declaration of Independence and the US Constitution


For example, this directive can be interpreted to address the $21,000,000,000,000 (trillion) debt you are facing as a burgeoning workforce of the future. (US Debt Clock link)  This immense burden heaved upon you by the United States Congress is both unnecessary and irresponsible.  Your government should never have allowed this debt to threaten your future.

A second example is the disregard for the Rule of Law.  When a state passes a law to protect its residents and a single federal judge is allowed to decide that an entire state's decision is unconstitutional, this federal legal action creates a barrier between the will of the state and its ability to protect its residents.  This judicial over-reach threatens compliance with the Supremacy Clause of Article VI of the US Constitution and our federal immigration laws. (Sanctuary City ban in Texas threatened)


If you are interested in making your voice heard by participating in the drafting of an amendment to the US Constitution and sharpening your own position on constitutional issues, please consider this competition your platform for freedom.  We are securing the participation of several highly-qualified individuals to serve on the Qualifying Panel and the Final Round panel of judges.
