We hope your school will consider applying for the Excellence in Civic Engagement Program so that you can be recognized as one of Arizona’s Civic Engagement Schools for your work in helping prepare your students to participate as active and responsible citizens. The “Arizona Civic Engagement School” designation will do more than highlight to the community your commitment to civic education: The designation will also assure that our republic’s future is secure in the hands of educated, prepared youth.
