The New Hampshire’s Kid Executive Council consists of the Kid Governor and the final candidates from the Statewide Election who counsel and advise the Kid Governor through his or her term. The Council meets periodically throughout the Kid Governor’s term in office. The Council uses these meetings to discuss how they can support the Kid Governor’s campaign initiatives in their own communities and raise awareness for the Kid Governor’s platform across the state.
