Region 9 ESC would like to congratulate the students and teachers who participated in the Citizen Bee and Bee in Box competitions held in April. Both of these events were conducted in a virtual format; sponsored by The Sumners Foundation and administered by Law-Related Education.
Competitors were required to complete a written and oral round of questioning over The Constitution, Documents and Supreme Court Cases, People, Civic Values and Skills, and Current Events. Prizes were awarded to the top 3 places in each competition, but the Citizen Bee (9-12 grade) winner moves on to the State-wide competition which will take place on May 18th & 19th. Please join us in celebrating these talented and knowledgeable students and their dedicated teachers.
