Honors go to Edwin M. Stanton Elementary and Merion Elementary, this
year’s Dual 2014 Citizenship Challenge Champions! We also honor this year’s 2nd
and 3rd place winners respectively: Cynwyd Elementary and Chestnutwold
Elementary. Together, these schools presented some compelling positions and
possible solutions aimed at increasing voter participation – a challenge facing
our democracy today.
A full event recap with photos can be viewed via Arcadia University’s“The Bulletin.”
1st Place (tie):
Our sincere thanks go out to our partners at the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia for hosting the event and making it a fantastic day for
all who attended during the opening of their new Bill of Rights exhibit, "Constituting Liberty." The 2014 panel of judges were Judge Marjorie Rendell, former PA Governor Ed Rendell, Arcadia Provost Dr. Barbara Nodine, National Constitution Center President and CEO Jeffrey Rosen, and Philadelphia sportscaster and legendary reporter Ray Didinger.
The top two winners each received $1,000 to be used for civics programming, as well as a civics library. In addition, the 2nd and 3rd place winners each received $500 toward civics programming. All top 10 finalists received a “We the Civics Kids” civics library.
