What happened to the Champion of Civics Award?

During the pandemic, the Civic Learning Award program took pause to honor individual programs, classes and clubs, and individual Champions of Civics. This was the model for 2021 and 2022 during a time when schools were remote learning, supporting hybrid classrooms, and getting back to campus life full-time.

In 2023, the program returned to its pre-pandemic purpose--honoring schools with an all-encompassing commitment to civics. 

The Champion of Civics Award will be presented in the future at the discretion of Power of Democracy Civic Learning Initiative or the Chief Justice.
