The Civics & Law Honor Roll recognizes secondary school students (grades 9-12) who demonstrate a commitment to civic learning and engagement. Originally created by the ABA Commission on Civic Education in the Nation’s Schools, its purpose is to create enthusiasm for and reward academic and community volunteer achievements in civic education and engagement
To be eligible for recognition, students should do one or more of the following:
- Participate in a volunteer civic or community activity - including OCLRE program(s) - that promote the rights, duties and obligations of good citizenship.
- Attend and participate in a city or town council or school board meeting, or serve as a volunteer at a legislative session.
- Attend a municipal, county, or state court trial or proceeding.
- Volunteer in a candidate’s election campaign for public office.
Selection of participating students is at the discretion of OCLRE.
The Ohio Center for Law-Related Education will recognize honored students on its website and in print, including but not limited to newsletters and in submissions to outside media outlets.
