Ethan Sonneborn and his teenage strategists discuss his historic campaign for governor in this free Good Citizen Challenge event. Learn why they decided to spend their summer running a political campaign, how they captured national media attention from the New York Times, theWashington Post and CNN, and how they convinced nearly 7 percent of Democratic voters to pick a 14-year-old as the party’s nominee for governor.

Organized by Seven Days and Kids VT, with support from the Vermont Community Foundation.

Attending this event is worth 30 bonus points in the Good Citizen Challenge, a civics project for Vermont youth. The deadline to complete the Challenge is October 9. Find a scorecard in the September issue of Kids VT or at
