Kids Convention 2012

Calling all kids who want to get involved in youth civic education - or want to learn more about the DNC.

The Charlotte in 2012 Convention Host Committee will be hosting Kids Convention 2012 at 10:30 a.m. tomorrow at the EpiCentre, 210 East Trade Street.

The event will last until 3 p.m. and feature an appearance by Mayor Anthony Foxx. Participants, grades kindergarten through eighth, will have the opportunity to learn more about civic education and the upcoming Democratic National Convention, while also seeing youth entertainment acts.

The EpiCentre and GenerationNation, formerly known as Kids Voting, are helping to put on the community event.

To attend, individuals are also asked to help give back to the community and donate a school supply.
