Pavlov announces ‘Be a Senator for a Day’ summer reading contest

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

The contest begins Monday, June 17. The contest and the libraries’ “Dig Into Reading” programs encourage students to keep their minds active and educated over the summer months.

The contest is open to first through fifth grade students 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 any public library branch in those counties.

One winner from each branch will be selected to bring their parents to Lansing for a tour of the state Capitol, mock committee hearings and pizza party with Pavlov. This fun program is designed to keep young people reading during the summer and stimulate their interest in state government.

“This is a great chance for students to get excited about reading and government at a young age,” Pavlov said. “I hope the contest will keep their minds active and engaged in reading, learning and the civic process.”
