The City of Coral Springs was named Kids Voting Broward Local Government of the Year. The award will be presented at Kids Voting Broward’s Seventh Annual Community Recognition Luncheon on Friday, October 24, at noon at The Signature Grand in Davie.
The City of Coral Springs has been a strong supporter of Kids Voting Broward for over 10 years. During the past decade, the City has provided volunteers to work at precincts on Election Day, specifically for Kids Voting ballot boxes. . In addition, the adult volunteers partnered with students from the high schools in the area to provide children with the opportunity to vote alongside their parents.
“Coral Springs was the only municipality to provide volunteers through the city’s volunteer program, saving us a great deal of time and effort,” Kids Voting Broward Chair Latha Krishnaiyer said. “Coral Springs has been an invaluable partner in our efforts to educate, inform and motivate children (K-12) by actively engaging them and their families in voting and other forms of civic engagement.”
