Celebrating Civics at the Charlotte in 2012 Kids Convention!

At the June 2 Kids Convention, hosted by Charlotte in 2012, EpiCentre, and GenerationNation, hundreds of kids and their families spent a fun Saturday exploring civics in action.

Kids had opportunities to make campaign buttons, play the Civics IQ game, vote on a community issue, come up with ideas and solutions for the country and city, and hear from civic leaders. They also had a great time dancing with Radio Disney and watching Inspire the Fire and the West Charlotte marching band.

In one of the activities, students considered their ideas and solutions for the nation and city. Download lesson
