District Choral Festival Suggestions

Hi,
I am looking for some suggestions for two or three part literature for our District Choral Festival. Our situation is that we have 9 elementary schools that do choirs (5th and 6th grade students) as before/after school activities. They meet one or two times each week. As the high school director I am looking for literature that will be accessible, quality, positive message and fun for the kids to learn and perform. I would love to hear what has worked for you in situations like this. Thanks in advance.

My School District holds an annual festival combining choirs at all levels.  I am going to strongly recommend Greg Bartholomew's The Promise of Liberty as the finale this year.  You can see the score and hear a recording here:  http://choralnet.org/306140#thepromiseofliberty7236  There are unison with descant and SATB arrangements.
