Collection Description

This collection includes organizational records, contest materials, photographs, and videos of Michigan and national competitions.


Administrative History

Citizen Bee was an educational competition originated by Robert Clarke, a political science professor at Grand Valley State University in Allendale, Michigan, to challenge high school students on their knowledge of American history, government, geography, economics, and current events. The program helped students understand the liberties as guaranteed in America’s Founding documents, and how the words and ideas of America's Founders and our Founding principles affect each citizen’s life. The first bee was held in Kent County in 1981 under the sponsorship of the Grand Rapids Press. In 1985, it became a national program, currently known as the Bill of Rights Institute.
