Event description
Introducing New Hampshire's Kid Governor program for 5th grade teachers!

About this Event

This workshop will introduce New Hampshire 5th grade teachers to the New Hampshire's Kid Governor program and provide an opportunity for teachers to learn tips and tricks for participating.

Kid Governor® is a national award-winning civics program for 5th graders created by the Connecticut Democracy Center (CTDC) in 2015. New Hampshire’s Kid Governor is led by the New Hampshire Institute for Civics Education and New Hampshire Institute of Politics with support from the New Hampshire State House and Department of Education.

The program is timed to coincide with Election Day in November and offers each school in New Hampshire the opportunity to enter one student candidate into a statewide election that other 5th graders vote in. Classes can vote in the election, nominate a classmate to run for office, or both! Toolkits of in-class lessons guide teachers and students through the program.

Educators who participate in this training and follow through with either version of the program will receive a $100 stipend. Educators will receive a certificate for 5 professional development hours.

Lunch will be provided. Register today!
