Washington Monument America's Best Idea Grant

Thanks to an America’s Best Idea grant, National Mall and Memorial Parks partnered with two after school clubs to introduce students to the national parks, the National Mall, and the life and work of Franklin D. Roosevelt. A partnership with Kid Power, a civics-based organization that provides academic, artistic, and service-learning opportunities for youth in the District of Columbia, has led to a greater awareness of the national parks in the D.C. community and increased knowledge of historical content, as demonstrated by students at the park sites and during ranger visits.
