Hello everyone! My name is Ellie and I’m NH’s 2024-2025 Kid Governor. My platform is helping to decrease animal abuse in NH. I chose this platform because I love all kinds of animals and they shouldn’t be treated badly. Currently for my platform I am having a drive at my school to donate supplies to my nearby shelter.

As part of my Awareness Campaign, I am sharing the contact information of shelters by regions of NH:

My Executive Councilors have been very busy too! Check out what they have been up to in support of their platforms:

NH Kid Executive Councilor Jack R. of St. Christopher’s Academy in Nashua held a
successful food drive as part of his platform on combatting childhood hunger in NH. His classmates donated about 200 pounds of food to the Nashua Soup Kitchen and Shelter.

NH Kid Executive Councilor Levi W. of Beaver Meadow School in Concord created “Fun Fridays” at his school to promote his platform on kindness and inclusion.

NH Kid Executive Councilor Zoey H. was recently recognized at a Rochester school board meeting for her platform on children struggling with mental health issues. With the help of her classmates at Maple Street Magnet School, she started a Kindness Club at her school.

NH Kid Executive Councilor Parker F. from Maple Street School in Hopkinton has launched a campaign to raise money for The Ocean Cleanup in support of her platform on littering and pollution. She has also sold recycled items from trash in the ocean at her school to support her platform.

In support of her platform to help teachers fund classrooms, NH Kid Executive Councilor Hattie H. of Edward Fenn Elementary School in Gorham recently distributed school supplies and classroom snacks throughout her school. She’s planning a second fundraiser in June.

NH Kid Executive Councilor Noah S. from Oyster River Middle School in Durham is fighting homelessness by collecting donations for Gather NH.
