HISTORY OF FLAG DAY
An important component to the event is student engagement. Though Flag Day takes place at the very end of the school year, students have been able to participate in the event through historical reenactments and history quizzes. In 2010, the Clark County Mayors’ Patriotic Tie Competition was developed and Mayors from Clark County municipalities participate and bring supporters from their cities to attend the event. Average attendance is 250-400 (weather depending).
