Meet the Candidates Traveling Exhibit

The Meet the Candidates Traveling Exhibit is back for 2021! We’ve created this traveling exhibit to highlight the students who ran for Connecticut’s Kid Governor this school year and their platforms. Each exhibit panel showcases a candidates or nominee for CTKG and highlights their community issues, their three-point plan, an explanation of why their issue is important, and a brief bio. This year’s exhibit features 20 student panels and accompanying lesson plans to inspire students of all ages in your school to be active, engaged citizens.

Each year the exhibit visits schools and libraries across the state and is seen by thousands of students — will your school be a stop this year? To request the exhibit, email Jacob at
