Social studies students from Hillsborough County public high schools participated in Representative Kevin Ambler’s 4th Annual “Ought to be a Law” bill-drafting competition on Jan. 12, 2008. Students had three minutes to present their bill to a panel of Hillsborough County Legislative Delegation members. The winning bill was written by Thomas “T.J” Mouse, a sophomore at Chamberlain High School. Representative Kevin Ambler and Senator Victor Crist sponsored the bill during the 2008 legislative session. The competition was created by Representative Ambler in 2004 and started with only one school.
