LANSING, Mich. — State Sen. Phil Pavlov, R-St. Clair Township, on Monday announced his 2017 “Be a Senator for a Day” summer reading contest in coordination with local libraries.

The contest begins Monday, June 19 and runs through Saturday, Aug. 19. 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 or the communities of Richmond, Armada and New Baltimore in Macomb County, or the reading program at the Blue Water YMCA.

“It is not enough for our children to be physically active over the summer; their minds should be active and engaged as well,” Pavlov said. “The 2017 ‘Be a Senator for a Day’ contest and the reading programs at local libraries encourage kids to keep up their learning in a fun way.”

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 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.
