Points of Pride: Tartan CIS American Government students attend U of MN Field Day

On Wednesday, January 4, 2017, Tartan's College-In-The-Schools American Government students attended their Field Day at the University of MN.  The topic of debate was the Electoral College and the keynote speaker was MN Secretary of State Steve Simon.  

Before Wednesday, Tartan students researched and wrote a paper on the topic of retaining or replacing the Electoral College; they debated the topic with 500 other students from around MN on Field Day.  

In additional preparation for the day, Brooke Berlin (Tartan senior) designed a t-shirt, through Big Frog in Woodbury, that looked like a typical "college" t-shirt on the front with a quote from Mr. Simon on the back: "Your vote is your voice.  Failure to vote is not an act of rebellion.  It is an act of surrender."
