The Middle School Brochure Contest is a contest for 8th graders in California. The contest is to create a tri-fold brochure out of an 8 ½” x 11″ piece of paper while following the prescribed guidelines. See the Resource Material below.
The permanent Middle School Brochure Contest theme is:
“The Foundational Documents of the United States“.
These documents include:
Articles of Confederation
Declaration of Independence
Bill of Rights
The theme for the Brochure Contest is structured to match up with the Government curricula that is found in the majority of states during the middle school years. The students will be encouraged to pick a particular founding document and produce a brochure within the established criteria.
The Brochure Contest is open to 8th grade children attending: public school, private school, home schooled and when a child’s school is not participating in the contest, the contest is open to them as members of the: C.A.R. (Children of the American Revolution), Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts.
Chapter Brochure winners will receive recognition at the Chapter level. Chapter winners then compete at the State level. And the California State winner will compete in the National Competition for even more prizes.
