Think the Vote:
At the Bill of Rights Institute, a trusted resource for social studies educators for twenty years, we are committed to finding ways to engage middle and high school students about the important issues facing our country today, within the framework of the principles and virtues of our nation’s Founders. That is one of the reasons we created Think the Vote, a website where students can go to learn about the issues and engage in thoughtful, civil debate away from the noise of social media.
Every two weeks, on the Think the Vote debate platform, we propose a question for students to comment on, and every two weeks we award two gift cards and T-Shirts to the students who make the strongest case for their position on both sides of the question. At the end of the school year, we will be selecting a winner from all of the bi-weekly winners and that student will win a $1000 scholarship.
