Olympiad 2021 Registration Information and Handbook are now live!
This year's theme: 2020 - A Current Event to Remember!
Sponsored by: Macomb Intermediate School District and the Michigan Council for the Social Studies.
2020 has been a year to remember. Events seem to have unfolded in a never ending quest to out do the news from the day before. From the tragic to the absurd, from local to global, from fake to informative, and from Twitter to the New York Times, the news has been a huge part of our lives this year. How has it impacted you?
Your Olympiad theme this year asks you to explore these types of issues in your Olympiad events. Good luck digging into the news in your own creative way.
In our commitment to diversity and inclusion, The Michigan Council for the Social Studies, and the Michigan Council for History Education, condemn the racist practices and policies that have resulted in the use of violence against members of our society, particularly members of the Black community. We are appalled by the killings and brutality. As organizations committed to social justice and racial equality, we continue to stand with our Black students, families, and educators. We will work to change the narrative about race in this nation by using our voice to make positive changes in education and our communities. We will continue to help address and eliminate racism, prejudice, and bigotry in all forms through honest dialogue and education. Informed people have the tools to engage in substantive conversation, to advocate for important policy changes, and to take informed action to foster positive changes in our communities and for future generations.
