"So You Want to Be President" Tour for School Groups
Electing a president is the fundamental act of American democracy. It is the only event on the civic calendar that involves the entire nation in a single act of citizenship. It's a chance - every four years - to discuss, debate, and decide the nation's direction and future. On the "So You Want to Be President" Tour, students will be engaged in the election process from the moment they walk into the exhibit.
Produced by the National Constitution Center, this exhibit is made possible through the generosity of The Annenberg Foundation, The Pew Charitable Trusts, and the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation.
