A student civics competition for US public school students, grades 6-12
Students find an issue they are passionate about, research and advocate for it, make a difference in their communities—and earn a cash prize along the way.
What students need to do:
- Find a passion: Identify a community problem where you want to make a difference.
- Research: Learn the facts.
- Find the helpers: Learn about local organizations/individuals working on the problem.
- Design: Create an engaging visual presentation about your topic to educate others.
- Advocate: Present your project (to your class and to a group outside of your school).
What teachers and students need to know:
- This project does NOT need to be a class assignment—students can submit independently, with a youth group or club, and individual or group projects will be accepted.
