Last year more than 2,000 Clark County 5th and 7th grade students participated in a mock political convention at the Henderson Pavilion. Four topics were debated and students then showed their support or opposition for each issue by voting. The goal of KidsVention is to develop lifetime citizenship and voting habits. Check out the video.
Check out the coverage of the 2008 KidsVention. There will certainly be a lot young people excited about the issues this year.
