The Bill of Rights Institute has launched a national civics contest called MyImpact Challenge. This contest is for students and teachers who are making an impact with citizenship projects in their communities. The contest will award $40,000 in total prizes, including a $10,000 student grand prize and prize money to the teacher of the grand prize winner, the teacher with the most valid student entries, and the first 20 teachers who have 10 or more valid entries.
Students must align their project to constitutional principles and submit evidence of how they impacted their communities. The Bill of Rights Institute will support students with activities that explore the connections between citizenship, charity, entrepreneurship, and design thinking; live webinars with fellow students and community leaders; and support staff to help them along the way. Applications must be submitted by May 16, 2022. Go here to learn more.
