Eleven Central Valley schools have won Civic Learning Awards as part of a program that gives students tools and experiences to become civically engaged.

The awards program is part of a civic learning initiative of California Supreme Court Chief Justice Tani G. Cantil-Sakauye, in partnership with Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson.

Eleven Central Valley schools won the California Civic Learning Award of Merit. These include Clovis (Century Elementary School, Clovis North High School, Clovis West High School, Garfield Elementary School, Maple Creek Elementary School and Mountain View Elementary School); Sanger (John Wash Elementary School and Sanger High School); Madera (Sherman Thomas Charter Middle School and Wilson Middle School) and Tulare (Tulare Union High School).

Justice Donald Franson, the Fresno County Civic Learning Partnership leader, said in a statement: “I admire and congratulate these Fresno, Madera and Tulare County schools. They are an inspiration for our communities. By engaging in hands-on, meaningful civic learning our young people gain the understanding that their civic engagement is valued and worthwhile.”
