If a kid wants to run for president, become a lawyer, control the Federal budget, or just learn more about civics, iCivics will allow them to do those things and more. It has civics-related games that can be played without registering, but creating an account allows users to earn achievements, dress up their avatar, and earn impact points to make a real difference in the world. iCivics users can earn impact points through playing games and then donate them to their favorite causes. At the end of the competition, the cause with the most points get $1000 for their project. The website includes teacher resources such as lesson plans and class organizational tools to help their students make the most of the website.
