HELENA, Mont. — Nearly 50 second grade students from Warren Elementary School visited the State Capitol this week, meeting with staff from the Secretary of State’s Office and Governor’s Office during their trip.
Secretary of State Christi Jacobsen and staff provided each student with a copy of the US and Montana Constitution, while encouraging them to participate in the US Constitution Contest and Montana YouthVote in the fall.
Students learned about the various responsibilities between the Executive, Judicial, and Legislative branches. They also had the opportunity to ask questions and showcase their knowledge of Montana history.
Following the visit with the Secretary of State’s Office and Governor’s Office, students and teachers enjoyed lunch on the Capitol lawn before continuing their field trip aboard the Last Chance Tour Train.
“What a great opportunity for these young students to visit our State Capitol and learn more about Montana’s history,” said Secretary Jacobsen. “Thank you to Mrs. Ford, Mrs. Kimball, and Mrs. Merritt for allowing the Secretary of State’s Office to visit with the second graders, and thank you to the students for bringing such excellent questions.”
