Know Your Government is a teen civics education program open this year to all youth ages 13 and up. All Washington teens are invited (you do not have to be in 4-H or pay a membership fee to join.) Students across Washington state, whether they’re a part of 4-H or not, can come together to learn about and participate in the legislative process through an interactive curriculum. Friendly competition will encourage engagement with real bills, real legislators, and real civic-minded students across the state. As delegates complete challenges involving their local and state governments, they will get to attend Zoom meetings with facilitators and other delegates to play games, hear from speakers, and have their achievements recognized.
And it will all come together in a culminating event in central Washington on March 5th with activities, a speaker, and a celebration. Everyone who completes at least three tasks will get awarded KYG swag–and the more you complete, the more swag you get! What is the prize for going above and beyond? Time with the incredible core team before the event on March 5 to get a behind-the-scenes look. They are opening up the curriculum for anyone 13 and older.
