The purpose of Civic Education Day is to recognize the importance of civic education and those involved. Civic education related organizations display tables offering civic education resources for educators and the public, breakout sessions offer hands-on learning opportunities, and a private luncheon is held to honor the Civic Educator of the Year. If you know an outstanding civic educator, you can nominate him or her by completing this form. Send the form with your recommendation for Civic Educator of the Year to the nominee's Washington State Senator or Representative for formal nomination. The deadline is January 27, 2014.  If you need to find the names of the nominee's Senator or Representatives, click here to Find Your District.

Teachers who would like to attend should RSVP by email or call (360) 786-7993.
