New Funding Opportunity--Student Mock Elections

The U.S. Election Assistance Commission has made available up to $300,000 in grant funds for the first year of a two-year award to organize and administer mock elections for High School students. The application deadline is June 30, 2009 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time. The purpose of the program is to allow students to become more familiar with voting processes and technologies so that when they become eligible to vote they will be more comfortable with their civic duties.
