Project V.O.T.E.

votepatch.gifThe national, state and local election process will be at the top of the news until Election Day.  The election process provides a vivid backdrop to learn, get involved and become active in the political process.  Girl Scouts of Central Texas and the Texas State Department invite Girl Scouts of Southern Alabama to participate in the Project V.O.T.E. patch program!  There are activities appropriate for each age level. 

 

Some of the activities include:

  1. Name five objects that are necessary in a polling place in order to conduct an election.
  2. Make a poster or other visual display that depicts why people should vote and exhibit it at your school or local library. Example: an event, historical depiction, historical figure connected with why voting makes a difference.
  3. Design a ballot box.
  4. Design a logo which might encourage people to vote.
  5. Pretend that you are an elected official and prepare a speech to convince people why they should vote. Present the speech in a public place.

I love this patch! I think helping with voting should be a signiture Girl Scout activity.

I agree. I think that we are very blessed here in the U.S. to be able to vote. This would be a great lesson in Civics and Government for the girls.
