C-SPAN representatives said they picked Menzel for her dedication to learning new resources and how she uses them inside and outside of the classroom.

During the conference, Menzel, and 29 other selected educators, will hear from C-SPAN staff and leadership.

“The educators’ conference provides an opportunity for teachers to discover creative strategies to integrate C-SPAN programming into classroom activities,” said Craig McAndrew, C-SPAN Manager of Education Relations. “Our goal is to connect students with public affairs content that cultivates a better understanding of how our federal government works.”

C-SPAN covers all costs associated with the trip.
