“The New England College NH Primary Student Convention is an exciting opportunity for students to experience New Hampshire’s First in the Nation Primary. This year’s event promises to be an incredibly unique experience for students as we mark the 100th anniversary of the primary. New Hampshire is still first because we take seriously our responsibility to vet candidates, ask them the tough questions, and listen carefully to what they have to say. The convention will provide students with a front row seat to history, and I commend New England College for hosting this important event and encouraging students to be an active part of our democratic process.”
“The access that kids get is something I’ve never seen before. They’re in the front row, 10 feet away from a candidate and actually seeing them respond to questions on the fly. It makes the candidates very real.” (Newburyport News)
