The Washington Center hosts Concord's Phil Smith to Tampa during the Republican National Convention. During a two-hour session, hundreds of students from around the country take part in the Principles and Priorities federal budget exercise.
Principles & Priorities is our flagship exercise that has been used in hundreds of High Schools, Colleges and Universities across the country. In it, participants make decisions about the best combination of program spending and tax policies to match with their larger sense of what the principles behind our budgets should be and what priorities the government should place at the forefront of fiscal decision-making.
