Civics in Action -- The Bar Foundation and the Bar Association collaborated in 2012 on a year-long effort to present a civics education outreach program about the US Constitution to adults, "Could you pass this test?" to all of the 58 Rotary Clubs in NH.
In 2013, Civics in Action II is focusing on presentations to the 18 Kiwanis Clubs in New Hampshire. Slated to kick off in Fall 2013, "Civics in Action Goes Viral" is an adaptation of the program for students in middle and high school classrooms. Teachers sign up now at:

We the People: The Citizen & the Constitution
The We the People team from Milford High School met with Sen. Kelly Ayotte during a trip to Washington, DC, in April for the national We the People competition.
In January, 2013, students from Milford High School earned the
state championship at the We the People: The Citizen and the Constitution
State Finals held at the Legislative Office building in Concord. The student team
is pictured with Senator Kelly Ayotte, whom the students met on their trip to the
National Finals in Washington DC. The NH Bar Foundation helped launch fundraising
efforts for the trip with a grant for $1,000.
Several hundred attorneys and judges volunteer every year to teach students and residents about the law and the courts.
Attorneys from the New Hampshire Bar volunteer in large numbers through dozens of programs, providing an invaluable resource to schools, social service agencies, nonprofit organizations, and community programs throughout the state.
We appreciate your support.
