Even in these uncertain times, participants of Ms President US are still finding ways to advocate for issues they are passionate about and campaign to become Ms. President US of their towns.

Students from fourth to eighth grade will be tackling a wide range of serious topics that not only need to be addressed but those that interest them as well. Campaign platforms include reducing pollution, animal protection, dyslexia, diversity, autism, feminism and many more.

Girls running a campaign will find a way to best present their research, speak on their topic, and display why they should be the next Ms President US of their town.

After last year’s successful virtual elections, Ms President US is excited to showcase all participants’ public speaking skills in this year’s virtual election. Candidates representing Connecticut towns including: Ridgefield, Wilton, Danbury, Stamford, Westport, Old Saybrook, Norwalk, Trumbull, Hamden. Murray (K.Y.), and Gilbert (Ariz) will also have a candidate. Virtual elections will be held March 21 at 4 p.m. over Zoom, March 21, and those that would like to attend (it is free and all are welcome) should RSVP here. All those who register can take part in voting.

All are welcome to attend the election and Ms President US appreciates the tremendous amount of work the young participants of Ms. President US have put in through the 2020-2021 session.
