Kansas students have another way to test their civics knowledge.

Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach on Wednesday announced the CyberCivics Completion Program, open to any public, private or home-school student ages 10 to 14.

To participate, visit the Kansas CyberCivics website – www.civics.ks.gov – which features lessons on Kansas history and statehood, geography, government and more. Students who complete the curriculum can print and take a comprehensive exam, which is required to be proctored by a teacher or other adult sponsor. Students scoring 90 percent or higher on the test will receive a certificate of achievement from Kobach’s office.

For more information about the CyberCivics program, e-mail media@sos.ks.gov.
