Mr Egnot and 7th Grade Run Mock Presidential Election ComPlete with Nominating Conventions and An Electoral ColleGe
Today The electoral college elected our President in realistic mock US election.
Have you ever wished for an election do-over? Well, at Piedmont Middle School, the 2016 US Presidential election just happened today.
Not just the usual school direct election, ours actually recreated the entire American Presidential election process: from multiple debates, issues research, and party platforms all the way to an actual electoral college simulation and live reporting from our in-school TV studio as results come in.
Each homeroom was assigned a state with a corresponding number of electoral college votes and proudly displayed state seal and motto outside their door.
Although, the results show Madison beat Isaiah, both were hard working and qualified as you see from the video and all Piedmont students were the real winners, thanks to the tireless work ofMr. Egnot organizing this educational event! Even the teachers said they learned something about our electoral process.
