E. Russell Hicks' team presented "Animal Abuse," utilizing PowerPoint technology for the first time in the state showcase.

Project Citizen, according to 6th District coordinator Gene Ebersole, is designed to aid and encourage students and citizens with understanding and (participation) in the American political system.

"The program is an opportunity for students to understand the workings of local government and ultimately creates better citizens as we all work together to improve our communities," Ebersole said.
