Senior Rodrigo Estrada represented the El Paso region and got a near perfect score at the contest, earning him a $1,500 scholarship from the State Bar of Texas, Ruben Carrillo, Fabens High School Principal, said.

The Texas Citizen Bee is a law-related contest where contestants are challenged in various subjects including historical documents, key figures, landmark court cases and current events. The top 4four scorers then advance to the final round, known as the Civic Conversation Contest, where contestants synthesize several historical documents to apply them to pressing issues and propose a solution.

Estrada also made contest history by placing first in the Civic Conversation Contest, Carrillo said.

The contest was held at the Texas State State Capitol and the Texas Law Center. Students from 21 educational service center regions across the state participated.
