Mighty Media Press has partnered with non-profit organization Kids Voting Minneapolis to teach kids about civic engagement this election season.This year, the publisher is working with Minneapolis public schools to organize reading activities around their latest picture book, Monster Needs Your Vote. The goal is to inspire kids to take an active role in their society.
We suspect most educators would endorse Kids Voting’s slogan, ‘Vote young, vote forever’…Students in participating schools actually vote. In Minneapolis, they cast mock ballots for real candidates at real polling places, and their votes are counted and results posted on a website by school and grade. (StarTribune)
