Participatory Budgeting Vote Day Students
Trevor Browne’s Participatory Budgeting Project had its election, March 5 and Hot Eats, Cool Treats received a total of 606 votes, edging Park Your Rear Here campus seating by only seven votes. The winning project will provide additional reach-in refrigerators in the cafeteria for students to have grab and go lunch options. This will allow students more time to eat and engage with other students rather than waiting in line.
Students also had an opportunity to register to vote (for real elections) and 165 students registered.
“Not only did students have an early introduction to civic engagement by voting on projects that will benefit their school community and impact their overall school experience, but they understand the important right and responsibility to vote and are now prepared to do so in our next local, state and federal elections,” District Student Services Manager Cyndi Tercero said.
