Welcome to the 2011 Project Citizen Maine Showcase

Posted in Project Citizen by KIDS Consortium on May 20, 2011

Student teams are just starting to arrive at the State House in Augusta on this rainy Friday for the eighth annual Project Citizen Maine Showcase. The program will begin at 9:30 am.

KIDS Consortium staff have prepared the rooms where oral hearing will be held. The judges are meeting. Each of the 16 teams of students will present their public policy proposal to judges, who will ask questions and provide feedback. While the oral hearings are going on, another group of judges will review the binders each student team has prepared. Four finalists in the oral hearings will present in the second round, and an Exemplary Oral Hearing and Exemplary Portfolio will be selected.

The state legislature is still in session, and the senators and representatives have been invited to the Hall of Flags for the public displays of the project portfolios and the awards ceremony this afternoon.
