Digital Democracy Contest aims to ‘Empower students to engage 21st Century government’

The Global Networked-Intelligence Contest (GNIC.org) and Sunlight Foundation have partnered to promote the Digital Democracy Contest, an effort to engage social studies classes through a Web-based game that helps students “navigate and evaluate government information online.” The program includes lessons plans, information videos and a competition to help students practice research skills.

The contest is funded by a MacArthur Young Innovator Award.
