The event brings together students aged 13 and 14 across the district to participate in democratic processes.
NKDC provide the opportunity for every student to have a role as either candidate, agent, campaign manager, press team, residents association and polling station staff. Activities are set around each role and students will follow the democratic process from the nomination of a candidate, creating a party and drawing up a manifesto, to physically voting at a polling station and taking part in the count in reaching a conclusion with an elected candidate.
Throughout the day students will also have the opportunity to debate concerns relating to their interests too with activities such as Vote with Your Feet. There will also be a topical quiz relating to democracy.
