Dear [Insert Local or State Chamber Here],
I’ve heard that the National Civics Bee is expanding across America in partnership with local and state chambers. The intent of the competition is to encourage more young Americans to engage in civics and contribute to their communities. Organized in partnership with The Civic Trust of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation, the competition inspires 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. As an educator in [Insert City and State], I believe that empowering our children with learning opportunities like the National Civics Bee is beneficial for our community and future. I’d love to see our chamber participate in this program to make it available to children in our community.
Please keep me posted on your efforts to bring the National Civics Bee to our community.
