Summit I will be an interactive, participants will see demonstrations from current civics programs from our state. One demonstration will be from Echo Lake Elementary School students sharing their Story Path program. The students will have created their own political parties, selected candidates, campaigned and then elected their own president in two separate classes. The newly elected Presidents will be officially sworn into office by Chief Justice Barbara Madsen in the Temple of Justice. Summit I participants will also see a demonstration of iCivics and hear from Citizen University founder, Eric Liu. Afternoon panels will focus on specific challenges to wide-scale implementation of civic learning and consideration of solutions.
