Entry Description

Second graders at St. Luke School learn about election

 

INDIANAPOLIS (Oct. 17, 2012) – Today, Indiana Secretary of State Connie Lawson taught a class of young Hoosiers about Indiana’s electoral process and about the importance of voting. The St. Luke second-grade class taught by Ms. Lydia Lehner is participating in Indiana Kid’s Elections, a mock election program sponsored by the Secretary of State’s office, the Indiana Department of Education and the State Bar Association.

 

Indiana Kid’s Election provides students in grades K-12 with the hands-on experience of voting in a class or school-wide mock election. Students learn to develop good voting habits at an early age by participating in voting milestones such as registering to vote and casting a ballot on Election Day.

 

“Our young Hoosiers are the foundation for Indiana's long-term success," said Secretary of State Connie Lawson. "Through Indiana Kids’ Election, we can help the next crop of leaders see up close the importance of civic participation and that elections are decided by those who show up."

 

On November 6, students participating in Indiana Kid’s Elections will elect their own governor and president in a show of active citizenship through the Indiana Kid’s Election mock election program. The students have accurately predicted the outcome of the election every year since the program started.

 

Teachers are encouraged to access the comprehensive curriculum guides and materials, free of charge, leading up to the 2012 general election at www.IndianaKidsElection.org. Note: The IKE curriculum meets state academic standards and was developed by a team of Indiana educators.
