The Games

PLAY The GAMES at: iCivics.org.

You do not need to register with iCivics to play.

In 2009, Justice Sandra Day O'Connor founded iCivics to reverse Americans' declining civic knowledge and participation.

Securing our democracy, she realized, requires teaching the next generation to understand and respect our system of governance.

Today iCivics comprises not just our board and staff, but also a national leadership team of state supreme court justices, secretaries of state, and educational leaders and a network of committed volunteers.

Together, we are committed to passing along our legacy of democracy to the next generation.
