The excitement was palpable yesterday as students came together to participate in the second annual Mock Election. Organized by the American Government Teacher Based Teams (TBT), consisting of educators Hannah Keene and Jonathan Moore, this educational event provided students with a hands-on experience in the democratic process.
The Mock Election, held in the high school media center, aimed to simulate the electoral process to help students better understand how real-world elections work and the importance of active civic engagement. As a vital part of the curriculum, the American Government TBT saw this as a unique opportunity to foster a deeper understanding of the democratic system.
One of the most notable aspects of this event was the significant involvement of the National Honor Society. These dedicated students played a crucial role in executing the Mock Election. Their assistance was invaluable in ensuring the smooth running of the event, from organizing ballots to monitoring the voting process.
The Mock Election was designed to reflect the real election process, experiencing firsthand the responsibilities and challenges of voters making decisions during elections.
Events like these play a vital role in shaping responsible, informed citizens who will go on to make a positive impact in their communities and beyond.
