Mila O'Brien of Enid Inaugurated as Oklahoma's Fifth Kid Governor
Oklahoma's Governors Support the Program!


Kid Governor® is a national award-winning civics program for 5th graders created by the Connecticut Democracy Center (CTDC) in 2015. Timed to coincide with Election Day in November, the program offers schools the opportunity to enter one student candidate into a statewide election that other 5th graders vote in. Classes can vote in the election, nominate a classmate to run for office, or both! Toolkits of in-class lessons guide teachers and students through the program.

Mila O’Brien of Enid’s Prairie View Elementary School was elected Kid Governor in the 2022 election and was inaugurated on Feb. 6, 2023 at a ceremony in the Oklahoma State Capitol. Among those in attendance were former Oklahoma Govs. George Nigh, Frank Keating, and David Walters .

Our special comic books are available for purchase for $4 each and $4 for shipping for up to 10 books. For each comic book you purchase, an Oklahoma 5th Grader will also receive a copy of the comic book.
