Calling all history buffs and presidents and civics aficionados: The Benjamin Harrison Presidential Site has a mission for you.

We need your help to jury the inaugural year of Project POTUSTM, a free annual national presidential history contest taking place in Spring 2022. Volunteers will be asked to commit about 90 minutes to viewing and scoring 1 minute videos about American presidents from middle schoolers across the United States, to take place sometime between February and May 2022. The software for Project POTUS is easy to use, and includes a side by side video player and scorecard, which allows all judging to be conducted remotely. 

Multiple rounds of judging will result in the selection of winners who will receive prizes, with over $5000 being allocated in student awards. A winning video will be chosen for each president, and will be compiled into the first annual '46 administrations in 45 minutes,' to premiere on Project POTUS channels in May 2022 following the closing of the contest.

Project POTUS is a national education initiative for middle school from the Benjamin Harrison Presidential Site.
