Michigan's Awardees

Thousands of students from across the country submitted inspiring entries, responding to the prompt “What does America mean to you?” for the first-ever America’s Field Trip contest. A panel of current and former educators selected 150 students as awardees, hailing from 44 states and territories.

Each first-place awardee will take part in a special field trip experience at one of America’s iconic historical and cultural sites and second-place awardees will receive a $500 cash award.
