Contests & Projects

​Following are links to organizations that sponsor project competitions for students. Even if students don't actually participate in the contest the ideas make great classroom projects. Check on the webpages for great teaching tips and resources.

  • We The People - Through the use of high quality resources, upper elementary and high school students learn about the constitution and develop civic competence. The students participate in a simulated congressional hearing.

  • Project Citizen - This program helps students become involved in projects in their local communities by promoting competent and responsible participation with government at all levels. Like the We The People program it is sponsored by the Center for Civic Education. There are also correlations to the Common Core Literacy and Social Studies standards available at this link.
