The Civics Bee is Coming to Arvada on April 11!

April 01, 2024

On April 11, 2024, the Arvada Chamber of Commerce will host the 2024 National Civics Bee competition in Arvada for the second straight year. Organized in partnership with The Civic Trust® of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation, the competition in Arvada will inspire middle schoolers to become better informed about American democracy, to engage respectfully and constructively in the community, and to build greater trust in others and institutions.

Middle school students from public, private, charter, and home schools were invited to take part in the first-round civics essay competition. A distinguished panel then chose the top 13 students to move on to the next round of competition: a live quiz event to test their civics knowledge. The Arvada Chamber will host this event in person on April 11, 2024 at Revive Church. The finalists will receive various prizes, including $500 cash for the first-place student, and the top three students will proceed to the state competition!

“The Arvada Chamber has a long history as a champion for policy and elected official engagement that promotes a thriving community,” said Arvada Chamber of Commerce President & CEO, Kami Welch. “Last year, we were so impressed by the passionate local entries in the National Civics Bee and are looking forward to again promoting civic engagement through this exciting competition.”

This event is complimentary! Join us on April 11 to celebrate civic engagement and knowledge amongst the future leaders of Arvada!
