To promote genetics education from K-12 and beyond, ASHG sponsors a number of education programs throughout the year. ASHG is one of the leading supporters of National DNA Day through its sponsorship of the annual DNA Day Essay Contest for high school students, which attracts entrants from nearly every state and over 20 countries. The Society also hosts the Genetics Engagement & Education Network of genetic experts to share educational resources and connect with the public, and an online database of standards-based lessons and other resources for teachers.
