Mock Election: High School Students (9-12)

About the Civic Awareness Expo


The Civic Awareness Expo (CAE) is an event much like a science fair, but in this case, it's a “political science fair.” Students create informational displays around the study of the different aspects of the electoral process. The goal of the CAE is to develop and improve students’ research skills, critical thinking skills, and to provide outlets for creative expression to boost their academic abilities in all areas of study.

In addition, the CAE is envisioned to provide an opportunity for students to be introduced to the electoral process in Nevada, through voting machine demonstrations conducted by local election officials. Students will be able to experience how persons with disabilities vote on ADA-compliant voting machines. Other nonpartisan community voting organizations are also encouraged to attend and provide information to students on issues facing them as citizens of the United States and the State of Nevada.
