KidsVention 2012 Kids Vote Political Convention October 19th at Henderson Pavilion

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.

This is a project of Kids Voting USA and is an official event on the Clark County Public School District calendar.  Check out the CCSD site for this project.
