The student-led HYPE (Hosting Young Philosophy Enthusiasts) conference included more than 1,000 high school students and teachers from Souhegan and Spaulding High Schools who took part in group and panel discussions exploring First Amendment issues.
As part of the "Campfires Initiative," funded by Pulitzer Board, the Mellon Foundation, the Ford Foundation and the Carnegie Corporation of New York, New Hampshire Humanities received a $30,000 grant that supported two highly successful events– a public forum featuring Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonists and humanities scholars for a lively discussion of cartooning and First Amendment Rights, and the HYPE conference. New Hampshire Humanities has partnered with Atlantic Media Productions to produce this documentary about HYPE Day as a model of student-led civics education.
