Showcase Overview

The Statewide Project Citizen showcases are held each year, in which teams present their portfolios and oral presentations on a problem in their community and their action plan for solving it before community members on judging panels. The top 10 winning teams of each regional showcase, the teams with the most convincing presentations, are invited to compete in the State Showcase held in Phoenix. The portfolio winner of the State Showcase is eligible to send their portfolio to the National Showcase held in July. Recognized as one of the top programs in the country, Arizona's portfolios showcased at the National showcase have won Superior awards consistently over the past 20 years.   If your school is not currently participating in this exceptional extracurricular academic program, we invite you to make this the year to start. Project Citizen is a portfolio-based civic education program for grades 5-12. It helps teachers and students understand public policy and use this information to create change in their community thereby empowering them and their teachers

The Project Citizen showcases are available to all Arizona middle and high school classrooms.

Please complete your registration no later than March 31st.

Showcase Overview

As a component of Project Citizen, entire classes of students work cooperatively to identify a public policy problem in their community. They then research the problem, evaluate alternative solutions, develop their own solution in the form of a public policy, and create a political action plan to enlist local or state authorities to adopt their proposed policy. Participants develop an electronic portfolio of their work and present their project in a public hearing showcase before a panel of civic-minded community members. The format provides students an opportunity to demonstrate their knowledge and understanding of public policy while providing teachers with an excellent means of assessing performance.  

The Project Citizen Arizona Regional Showcases are available to all Arizona middles and high schools and classrooms.

Helpful Tips for Completing the Registration Process
