Reveals High School Students" Views On American Citizenship Perseverance and Courage Valued Most, Declaration of Independence And Thomas Jefferson Inspire Most ARLINGTON, VA--While this Independence Day will certainly in61ude the usual festivities - fireworks, cookouts, patriotic speeches and Americans dressed in red, white and blue -the meaning behind the celebration has not been lost on America's next generation. A new nationwide survey of nearly 3,000 high school students, released today by the Bill of Rights Institute, Arlington, VA, provides a glimpse into what the nation's future leaders think aboutAmerican citizenship: what civic values they admire, who their political heroes are, and which of our Founding documents inspire them the most. The survey, based on an analysis of the top 3,000 essays submitted in the Bill of Rights Institute's 2009-10 Being an American Essay Contest - the nation's largest high school essay contest, with more than 50,000 entries this year- concentrated on three themes: ew of afstoa ires ci.d PAST AND PRESENT? Making the to'p five list, in order, were Thomas Jefferson (18 percent), Abraham Lincoln (14 percent), Martin Luther King, Jr (12 percent), George Washington (10 percent) and Thomas Paine (9 percent). 3. Which Founding Document Inspires Them The Most? means to be a modern American in light of our Founding Fathers and documents," said Jason Ross, Ph.D., vice president of education programs for the Bill of Rights Institute. "Perhaps even more important: The students believe that American citizens have a responsibility to live by certain principles, or civic values, of perseverance and courage." The analysis was conducted by Social Dynamics, LLC for the Bill of Rights Institute and paid for with a donation from Dr. John M. Templeton, Jr. Copies are available online at www. billofrightsinstitute.org or by contacting Sonia Blumstein at 205.620.2087 or Sonia@ PRoactiveSolutionslnc.net. About the Being An American Essay Contest: Sponsored by the Bill of Rights Institute, this annual contest asks students to write an essay in response to the following question: "What civic value do you believe is most essential to being an American? Trace the enduring importance of this value throughout the American story by discussing: a Founding document that reflects this value; a figure from American history who embodies this value; and examples of how you have and/ or could put this value into practice." In the 2009-10 school year, more than 50,000 students participated in the contest. Nearly $200,000 in prize money was awarded to students and their sponsoring teachers. The top three students from each of nine regions, and their sponsoring teachers, won trips to civic values, Founding Fathers and American heroes, and Founding documents. The survey found: 1. What Civic Values Do American Students Value Most? "Perseverance" and "courage" were cited most often as the civic values essential to being an American, with each value being chosen by approximately 15 percent of participating students. Other civic values identified by large numbers of students included equality and respect (14 percent), entrepreneurialism (12 percent), responsibility (9 percent) and liberty (8 percent). 2. WHOA RE THEIR HEROES, Students cited the Declaration and understand the importance Washington, DC. of Independence (47 percent) ............................................................................................................. and the Constitution (33 percent) Overall Values by Civic Value ategoe as the two most important and inspiring Founding. documents, followed by Thomas Paine's pamphlet, Common Sense. The breakdown of other Founding documents cited is outlined below: These results were consistent across all high school grade levels, in all school settings (public, private, and home school), with one exception: The majority of t0th graders identified President Lincoln, not Jefferson, as their top hero.

Students will attend workshops on voice and movement, improvisation, and script development and performance. From July 26 to 30, grades 7-12 will attend All in the Timing, where they will perform selections from the collection of David Ives' one-act plays by that title. The following week (August 2-6), grades K-6 will experience Wonderland in Wynola as they join Lewis Carroll's Alice in her adventures down the rabbit hole. Both camps will run from 10 A.M. to 3 P.M., Monday through Friday. A showcase at Spencer Valley School, open to the public, will conclude each week of camp. Cost for camp is a bargain at $100 per child, with a half-price fee of only $50 for each additional child from the same family. Scholarship applications are available.
