Followup: Madison Middle School’s ‘Project Citizen’ success

Three months after their afternoon of presentations to distinguished judges – here’s our February coverage, with videoMadison Middle School‘s “Project Citizen” winners are back from statewide competition in Olympia. The 8th-graders’ teacher/coach Starr McKittrick shares photos and this report:

Madison Middle School received an “Outstanding” rating with their project “Fund Our Futures,” which focused on education-funding issues in Washington State. They did extremely well for the complexity of their topic and showed a depth of knowledge that surpassed many projects presented by other groups. They were called by one judge, who also is a member of the Washington State Legislature, “an inspiration.” I am very proud of them and their performance.

Project Citizen is explained here.

    They look sharp! It is nice to see civics being taught in the day where if a subject isn’t tested it gets cut from programs. This gives me hope for our local education programs.

Sorry, comment time is over.
