Students from two Vermont high schools traveled to the Edward M. Kennedy Institute for the United States Senate in Boston on Thursday, as part of “Vermont Day” organized by Sen. Bernie Sanders.
This marked the third time Vermont students have participated in the bipartisan Kennedy Institute’s programming on democracy, civics and the legislative process.
It gave high school students first-hand learning about the day-to-day activities of a Senator.
About 65 students from Twinfield Union and Woodstock Union took on the role of a Senator for a day in the full scale replica of the United States Senate chamber.
