In partnership with the Florida Association for Media in Education (FAME) and the Collier County Public Schools, our office has helped hundreds of students cast a ballot to vote for their favorite Sunshine State Young Readers Award (SSYRA) book using real voting equipment.
SSYRA encourages students to read independently for pleasure and provides a learning opportunity about voting. Participating schools will announce their students’ favorite book after their scheduled “Election Day” and FAME will announce the statewide election results April 23.
Visit www.CollierVotes.gov to see where we will be helping our future voters throughout the rest of this month.
