Stuck in Vermont: Celebrating Good Citizens at the Vermont Statehouse

Episode 571



Youth from around the state participated in the first-ever Good Citizen Challenge last year. Students in grades K-12 completed a variety of civic-themed activities, such as visiting historic sites, drawing portraits of American patriots and doing good deeds like picking up litter. The challenge was organized by Seven Days and Kids VT, with support from the Vermont Community Foundation, and the young Vermonters who completed it gathered at the Statehouse in Montpelier on March 27. About 70 good citizens met Gov. Phil Scott and were recognized by the House of Representatives for their contributions to their communities. We spoke to the young people about what it means to be a good citizen and what they learned from this challenge.
