Still known to many as Kids Voting, the student election program of GenerationNation offers K-12 students opportunities to learn about and get involved in elections each year though a mock vote, service-learning in polling places, student council elections, teacher curriculum and more. Since the program was launched in Charlotte in 1992, hundreds of thousands of students have participated.
Every year, each student has the exciting opportunity to experience elections! Students in kindergarten through high school participate in a variety of ways, including:
Election results are counted and announced in the media and to schools after Election Day - you can see how students voted.
GenerationNation's programs are available to all teachers and students in any location. Contact us to learn how to involve your school or youth program in GenerationNation and the student election!
The I Voted sticker is just the start! Standards-based classroom activities are available through the year for grades K-2, 3-5, 6-8 and 9-12. Use the election to drive interest and strengthen comprehension in social studies, reading, writing and math through the year!
