Friends School Mullica Hill 2018 Ice Cream Election ResultsLast Edited:
While many were out voting for candidates in various local and state races, students at one South Jersey elementary school cast their votes in the most important race of them all.
On Tuesday, November 6th, in honor of the spirit of Election Day, Friends School Mullica Hill held their annual Ice Cream Election.
The full-scale election included voting booths, stump speeches by students, campaign posters, and more.
To the kids, this fun-filled and tasty activity taught them just how important it is to vote.
"People are voting for ice cream and whatever ice cream wins we're going to eat the winner," said Tommy a second grader at Friends School Mullica Hill.
"I learned — I didn't really know before how much, how important voting was but now I know that it's really important to vote," said Burke a second grader at Friends School Mullica Hill. "It definitely taught me and my class how to be better citizens."
And after a careful tally of the votes, this year's winner once again is mint chocolate chip.
This is the third year the incumbent has won the election.
School officials say they are thinking of creating a three-time term limit for next year's election.
