Phoenix and northern Arizona McDonald’s restaurants and Arizona Foundation for Legal & Education Services (AZBarFDN) are teaming up to launch “Be An Egg-xemplary Citizen” reward program and AZ HS Citizen trivia app to help students pass the mandatory Arizona Citizenship Test.

Participating high school students download the free AZ HS Citizen App from the Apple App Store on their iPhone or school iPad, show they have completed the six-section quiz to their teacher and receive a coupon for a free Egg McMuffin®, complements of McDonald’s.

Participating students that “pass” the Arizona Citizenship Test will also receive a coupon for a free Egg McMuffin.

The AZBarFDN has also developed a lesson plan for Arizona teachers to introduce the AZ HS Citizen App to 8th – 12th grade students.

To participate in the “Be An Egg-xemplary Citizen” program, teachers must sign up on AZBarFDN’s website, LawforKids.org.

The AZ HS Citizen app was designed by 16-year-old Primavera Online High School student Riley Danler, with help from his father.

Danler, grandson of AZBarFDN executive director Dr. Kevin Ruegg, developed the app after she expressed a need to help Arizona students pass the Arizona Citizenship Test.

“I am so grateful and proud of my grandson!  I am also so grateful to McDonalds for incentivizing students to learn about the very important role of citizenship.” stated Dr. Ruegg.

“We’re excited to reward Arizona high school students with our classic breakfast sandwich, now available all day long,” said Michelle Slayton, president of McDonald’s Owner/Operator Association of Phoenix and Northern Arizona. “Our 300-calorie Egg McMuffin, made with a freshly cracked Grade A egg, is an excellent source of protein.”
