Welcome to the New Hampshire’s Kid Governor® Student Action Resource Center!
The NHKG program teaches students like you that we can all make a difference in our communities. In fact, it is our responsibility to be active participants in our society in order to make it better!
Whether you ran as a candidate in the Statewide Election, voted in the election, or heard about NHKG through the news, the following resources will help you think about community issues you care about and take action!
What is a community issue?
Community issues are problems or concerns that a community (town, neighborhood or other community group) has and believes they can fix.
Do you notice any problems in your school or town? Perhaps you notice bullying in the hallways, litter on the streets, people in need of food, or animals in need of help. These are all examples of community issues, and there are many more. For inspiration, watch the campaign videos of past NHKG candidates HERE.
What community issue do you want to see changed in your school or town community?
How can kids make a difference around community issues?
There are lots of ways! Some suggestions include:
- Working with your classmates and friends
- Writing to your elected officials
- Using the media to gain support
- Starting a petition
What are YOU doing to make a difference?
We want to know! Email 2023 Kid Governor Haydin Simmons at Haydin@NH.KidGovernor.org to let her know what issue you care about and what you’re doing to make a difference. Perhaps you will get a shout-out in her NH Kid Governor blog!
No matter your age, we each have a voice and the ability to make a difference!
