Cabinet Member Guest Blog: Katy—Making an Impact

Hello Oregon!

Katy a member of the Kid Governor cabinet wears a hat and smiles at camera.

I’m Katy and my platform was equality. Since I had the honor of being inaugurated into the office as an Oregon kid governor cabinet member, I have done a few different things to bring awareness to my platform. I have also done things to support the kid governor’s platform regarding animals.

The first thing I did was create a game that I will be passing off to the middle school and the elementary school. It includes a true or false flashcard game to help everyone understand different forms of equality.

The other game is something like musical chairs. Everyone moves around the room and when the music stops, they have 20 seconds to find something they have in common with the person standing next to them. This brings all types of people together. It also helps the my fellow students see that we aren’t all that different from each other.Katy a member of the Kid Governor cabinet in a swing on a sunny day.

As for the kid governor’s platform, I have ran two successful lemonade and hotdogs stands in the last 2 months and I have a third one planned. I will donate all the proceeds at the end of the summer to the local animal shelter. I’m having a lot of fun and I hope I can make an impact. I’m really grateful for this opportunity and I will make sure to keep everyone updated as the year goes on.Two kids at a lemonade stand by the lake 13 hot dogs on a grill
