PVHS students participated in this year’s Youth Straw Poll. The students research and then vote on their favorite candidates in the 2020 election.
“A lot of Youth Straw Poll participants are eligible to vote in the Iowa Caucuses next Monday and I hope many of them do,” Secretary Pate said. “The Youth Straw Poll is designed as a hands-on learning experience to engage students in the civics process.”
While the entire 9-12 grades were invited to participate, only 354 did. President Trump came out on top with 131 votes, followed by Buttigieg and Yang. Students also voted for U.S. Senate and Congressperson. Thank you to Mr. Zahn for organizing this hands-on event for our students.
