‘Be a Senator for a Day’ summer reading contest announced

LANSING — State Sen. Phil Pavlov has announced his 2018 “Be a Senator for a Day” summer reading contest in coordination with most local libraries in the district.

The contest runs through Friday, Aug. 10. It is open to all first - through fifth-graders who have completed their local public library’s summer reading program in Huron, Sanilac and St. Clair counties and part of Macomb County.

“The ‘Be a Senator for a Day’ contest is a fun way for young students to keep their minds active and growing over the summer months,” said Pavlov, R-St. Clair Township. “Reading is vital for success in school and in life, and this is an exciting way to help promote it. I am grateful for the cooperation of local libraries in this contest.”

The first - through fifth-grade students may be enrolled in any public, private or home-based school. Once students have completed the summer reading program, they may fill out a contest entry form at their participating local public library branch.

One winner from each branch will be selected as a “junior senator.” The junior senators will bring their parents to Lansing for a tour of the state Capitol, mock committee hearings and a pizza party with Pavlov.
