Annual 9th Circuit Civics Essay & Video Contest

  • This annual contest is announced in January with a March due date. It is an essay and video contest for high school students in Alaska. The Alaskan winners would then compete at the 9th district level (Western United States and Pacific Islands). A subject of essays and video changes each year. Contest rules and entry instructions are available at https://www.ca9.uscourts.gov/civicscontest. Alaskan students win prizes and go on to complete at the 9th district level. This is a great exercise for teaching the US constitution or public speaking skills.
