To ensure active participation in our democracy, educators must help students engage with their communities and learn a variety of skills associated with political and community life. They also must help students cultivate attitudes and beliefs that might best be described as `civic virtues.`

NH Mikva Challenge Project Soapbox

Project Soapbox is a public speaking initiative put on by Mikva Challenge in partnership with the NH Institute for Civics Education, that calls on young people to develop and deliver an original speech on an issue that matters to them. 

We invite you to watch this state-wide virtual mainstage showcase for the 10 outstanding speakers who were chosen to advance in the Mikva Challenge.

This workshop was fabulous. I really needed ways to incorporate social studies into what I already do (English/Language Arts;) I feel I accomplished this here. The presenters were awesome.
