Summit delegates will not only attend the 58th Presidential Inauguration on the National Mall, but will be inspired by world-renowned speakers such as Gen. Colin Powell, Spike Lee, and Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Malala Yousafzai; participate in events that will solidify their path to becoming a future leader; work to create solutions to 21st century challenges as part of a Delegation for Change; and connect with fellow civic-minded, high-aspiring students. Delegates also get to take part in a night of food and dancing at an exclusive inauguration gala hosted at one of the Smithsonian Institution's historic museums.

The Champions for Change contest is a part of the broader Chase the Race in School program, which Envision and Discovery Education launched in February 2016, and includes a series of classroom resources to lead students through this year's major presidential election milestones. The online resources, videos, digital tools, and live virtual experiences bring these events to life through the perspective of the youth audience — from the primaries to the national debates, all the way to Election Day and the Presidential Inauguration.
