WFTX - Cape 912’s mission is to unite, educate, and take action to preserve the Constitution and the principles of our Founding Fathers.
In order to help instill in our youth a love for and an understanding of our Constitution and the principles of our Founding Fathers, Cape 912 has established an education focus directed to the youth in our schools and communities.
Cape 912 is currently a Bronze Sponsor for The Foundation for Lee County Schools providing Lee County Public School students grants based on the United States Constitution.
Cape 912 and the Foundation for Lee County Public Schools completed a program for the 6,000 eighth grade students as a part of their history instruction in Lee County Public Schools in the fall of 2011, and 6,000 Seventh Grade civics class students in fall of 2012.
Cape 912 judged the top essays submitted by each of the Lee County Schools. At completion of the judging, an awards ceremony was conducted at a televised school board meeting.
All students judged by Cape 912 were presented with a certificate of excellence.
The top essay winner’s from the Lee County school District were presented with a lap top computer.
Cape 912 will continue the Constitution Essay’s Contest Project for future Seventh Grade civics classes in Lee County.
