The Problem

We will know if we are successful if based on the bill we decided to support, the changes that grant money we receive make, and how many elected officials show us their support. But in the bigger picture this campaign is successful if it teaches the students that they have a voice in politics even from the age of 16 and 17. The goal is to have a more politically active next generation of voters.

Our Plan

After inspecting their community the students decided that they wanted to influence school lunch in the NYC area. They decided to address through a political avenue of writing letters, creating petitions, and applying for grants. They picked to contact the education board of the Bronx Committee, and the City Council to show support for a current bill under review.
