It's time to register for Connecticut's Kid Governor 2016-2017!

After a successful pilot year, the Connecticut Public Affairs Network at Connecticut's Old State House is excited to announce the second year of Connecticut's Kid Governor!

This fall, Connecticut 5th graders will participate in a statewide election for Connecticut's next Kid Governor. Through educational toolkits, which contain in-class lessons, and the 2016 election, students will learn about our three branches of state government, the history & process of voting, and the importance of civic engagement...all from the comfort of the classroom!

All 5th grade classes in Connecticut are invited to participate in this program by either nominating a student candidate from their school and voting in the election - or by just voting in the election. Don't miss your chance to participate in this FREE program...the next Connecticut's Kid Governor (CKG) could be YOUR student!
