5th graders across the state are voting between November 4th and 11th for Connecticut’s next Kid Governor.
The program is a national award-winning civics program for 5th graders created by the Connecticut Democracy Center in 2015.
Seven 5th graders have been chosen as the final candidates, and have outlined what leadership qualities they have, chosen a community issue that is important to them and created a three-point plan outlining ways for 5th graders in the state to make a difference around that issue.
