Civics Day is Generation Citizen's end-of-semester student showcase. Like a science fair for civics, students from schools across the region present their civic action projects to a range of community members like you. This day serves as a unique and memorable opportunity for students to take pride in their projects, advocate for their issues to a local audience, and collect feedback on their plans from teams of Judges. It’s also a powerful occasion for guests to learn about youth-led change efforts taking place across Massachusetts.
Civics Day features Civics Judging rounds in which teams of students from over 50 Generation Citizen classrooms present their civic action projects to guest judges. Over 100 guest judges (you!) divide into groups of 2-3 and hear a number of teams describe how they have identified pressing, local community issues, analyzed these issues by examining systemic root causes, and then taken action over the course of the semester, working with government leaders to pass legislation or implement new government programs. Judges give feedback and advice about how young people can take their work even further and continue to make their voices heard. We will follow-up directly with all registrants to confirm your participation and share specific details and training resources to prepare you for a meaningful day interacting with our students.
