Town Hall Meeting with Sen. Bernie Sanders at NH Primary Student Convention Announced
The New Hampshire Primary Student Convention is thrilled to announce that a Town Hall Meeting will be held with presidential candidate and Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders during the Convention, January 4-6, in Manchester, NH. Added to the growing schedule of candidate visits, workshops, and panel discussions, Senator Sanders will answer student questions and share his views on the future of America.
During the past three presidential primary cycles, New England College has brought the electoral process to a whole new audience eager to learn and participate. Nearly 1,000 college and high school students have convened to hear from presidential candidates, members of the state and national media, and issue advocacy groups for three days of serious, up close politicking.
Join us for this exciting and extraordinarily educational event! For more information and to register, go to: www.nhprimarystudentconvention.org
“The New England College NH Primary Student Convention is an exciting opportunity for students to experience New Hampshire’s First in the Nation Primary. This year’s event promises to be an incredibly unique experience for students as we mark the 100th anniversary of the primary. New Hampshire is still first because we take seriously our responsibility to vet candidates, ask them the tough questions, and listen carefully to what they have to say. The convention will provide students with a front row seat to history, and I commend New England College for hosting this important event and encouraging students to be an active part of our democratic process.”
“The access that kids get is something I’ve never seen before. They’re in the front row, 10 feet away from a candidate and actually seeing them respond to questions on the fly. It makes the candidates very real.” (Newburyport News)
