“We Vote!” Girl Scouts Discover Government

“We Vote!”

Girl Scouts Discover Government

Girl Scouts from troop 294 in Washingtonville came on Mar. 25 to Taft Elementary School to meet with local village, county, and school board representatives. The fourth grade girls learned about government: what it is, what elected officials do, and how it works. They discussed campaigning, slogans, and appealing to a constituency to run for an office and serve those who vote for them. The scouts asked questions about length of term, term limits, selecting an office to run for, and had fun discovering how democracy works and earning their patch on government. (Photo provided)
