Education

Educating both adults and children about our country's truth tellers and how they inspire us to act is a key mission of AWWT. Currently, we offer three major initiatives toward this end. Please check out these programs and contact us if you would have further ideas or questions. 
 
The Samantha Smith Challenge (SSC)
is a dynamic educational program for Maine middle school students designed to build a bridge between the classroom and the world and to create curious, courageous, and engaged citizens. SSC projects teach students that, no matter what age, they can be part of solving the challenges and problems they see around them. This program runs each year during the regular school calendar (September - June).  Learn more
