Update: iCivics Executive Director Louise Dubé Named 2018 Civvys Finalist
July 25, 2018
The American Civic Collaboration Awards (Civvys) highlight the outstanding efforts of civic collaborators making impact in local, national, and youth communities. We are excited to announce that iCivics Executive Director, Louise Dubé, was named as one of 40 honorees for the 2018 Civvys Awards. Finalists will be selected from one of the following categories: Local, Youth, Political, or National.
As Executive Director at iCivics, Louise Dubé works to provide all students with access to high-quality and innovative civic learning. In September of 2017, she further championed this charge with the Democracy At A Cross Roads National Summit. Through a collaborative effort with foundations like the Carnegie Corporation of New York and The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, the Democracy At A Crossroads convening brought over 200 influential educators, policy makers, and academics to explore opportunities to improve civic learning in schools. You can watch the full summit here.
Through her leadership, the Cambridge based company co-founded the Massachussetts Civic Learning Coalition. The coalition serves as a roundtable of twenty civic education organizations, research institutions, school districts, and stakeholders committed to improving the quality and implementation of K-12 civic education for students, across the state of Massachusetts.
Finalists will be announced in October at the National Conference on Citizenship in Washington, DC. For a full list of the 40 Honorable Mention awardees and category finalists, go here. Learn more about the Civvys and nomination criteria here. Follow along on social media using the hastag: #civvys.
