In Person Field Trip

Your Vote Counts (Grades 1 to 5)
This May, cast your vote to support your social studies curriculum with an in-person visit to the Star-Spangled Center featuring the Legislative Chamber, Courtroom and Oval Office. The Your Vote Counts civic education program offers students the opportunity to explore the voting process along with the three branches of government, turning students into educated citizens! Demonstrating voting as one of our most important rights and responsibilities, students will cast their ballots and evaluate election results on issues that matter to kids.
