High 5 for Kids
Kids can’t vote and they don’t give money to political candidates.
That’s why we launched the High 5 for Kids campaign – to give children a voice on the campaign trail.
Presidential hopefuls are traveling the country campaign for your vote. Get in on the excitement!
Join our campaign to ensure that expanding early learning and other critical kids issues are at the top of their priority list!
As they travel to early primary and caucus states, SCAN volunteers and staff are meeting with presidential candidates to ask them how they will invest in kids.
View the list below to see how candidates plan to invest in kids!
