On Nov. 8, students across Indiana will elect their own governor, president and senator in a show of active citizenship through Indiana Kids’ Election (IKE), an award-winning mock election program for grades K-12. Indiana attorneys have the opportunity to participate in this program by volunteering for the IKE Speakers’ Bureau, which will take place during the month of October.
In this session, ISBA Public Relations Committee Chair Joan Champagne will explain more about the IKE program, showcasing the IKE website where attorneys can sign up. Also, Bruce Blomberg, the social studies specialist at the Indiana Department of Education, will discuss the Indiana law on school responsibility concerning elections, IC 20-30-5-4. He will also discuss tips on how to present to elementary, middle and high school students.
This program is sponsored by the Indiana State Bar Association, Indiana Department of Education and the Indiana Secretary of State, and funded in part by the Indiana Bar Foundation. The Indiana Bicentennial Commission has officially endorsed the 2016 IKE program as a Bicentennial Legacy Project.
