|2014 National Showcase|
Want help solving a community problem? Look to Project Citizen students for guidance and leadership! The 2014 Project Citizen National Showcase displayed the know-how of students to solve their own local problems through civic engagement. Project topics included pollution caused by hydraulic fracturing, or "fracking," underage access to e-cigarettes, and replacing a middle school track, among many others.
The event was sponsored by the Center for Civic Education with generous donations from Trader Joe's of Woodland Hills, Cavaretta's Italian Deli of Canoga Park, and Starbucks Coffee of Calabasas Commons. Los Angeles-area community leaders, educators, and policy experts evaluated the country’s top student portfolios addressing public policy issues in their schools and communities.
The Center announced achievement levels for the national showcase on Friday, August 8, 2014.
Each portfolio was evaluated four times. Achievement level results are based on the average score of the four rounds of portfolio evaluation during the national showcase.
Special Recognition to all the Project Citizen teachers and students in the nation for their work on Project Citizen during the 2013-2014 school year.
