With classes canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic, the District Court of Guam, the Judiciary of Guam and the Guam Bar Association are holding an educational contest to encourage students to learn about civics during their time at home.
Middle and high school students can enter for the chance to win up to $200 in the COVID-19 Educational Challenge.
Students can participate in the challenge by registering for an account on iCivics.org, an online learning resource that teaches students about topics such as the presidential election, and news literacy.
Sarai Terlaje, who is an iCivics facilitator, says that iCivics is a great educational tool for students.
“Basically, students can just log on and they can play different games to learn about the way the government, the way the branches work, and the way they interact. It’s just a very interactive way of learning. So instead of just learning it in the classroom, it’s using those concepts and putting them into real-life scenarios,” Terlaje said.
