With deep reluctance, due to these challenging times and disruption of K-12 schools throughout the nation, it is necessary to postpone the Renewing the American Spirit contest. We are very grateful to the teachers and students who entered the contest and regret that we cannot carry it out as originally scheduled. We will launch the contest again in September during Patriot Week of 2020. By then we will have come back stronger than ever as a nation and more determined than ever to Renew the American Spirit.
