Dana 4-H Club Learns About Citizenship

— Written By

The Dana Wildcats 4-H Club sponsored an opportunity for Dana Elementary School students in the 2nd – 5th grades to research the various candidates running for President, and use their voice to vote for the candidates they thought should represent our country. The club members made posters to place around the school explaining the vote. They made a Google form where the students were able to vote March 10th-15th in the Computer Lab. The students were also asked to write why they chose their candidate. The Dana Wildcats 4-H Club members learned how important it is to research the candidates in order to make an informed decision, which is our civic responsibility! The results were interesting and the club plans to coordinate a Kids Vote in the Fall.
