Project Citizen United States National Showcase (Portfolio Only)

Event Date:
07/25/2018 to 07/26/2018

Description:
Project Citizen helps participants learn how to monitor and influence public policy. In the process, they develop support for democratic values and principles, tolerance, and feelings of political efficacy. 

Entire classes of students or members of youth or adult organizations work cooperatively to identify a public policy problem in their community. They then research the problem, evaluate alternative solutions, develop their own solution in the form of a public policy, and create a political action plan to enlist local or state authorities to adopt their proposed policy. Participants develop a portfolio of their work and present their project in a public hearing showcase before a panel of civic-minded community members.

The winner of the state competitions send winning portfolios to the National Showcase for judging.
