State Representative Kristina Daley Roegner (R-Hudson) hosted local students who were selected as contest winners for the representative’s “Legislator for a Day” reading program.

The students and their families were invited to spend the day with Representative Roegner at the Statehouse, where they enjoyed a mock legislative session, a pizza lunch, a visit to the Statehouse museum, and a tour of the Statehouse.

“I really enjoy the opportunity to share what I do as a state representative with students from our district,” said Roegner. “It is really fun to engage the students in role playing, debating bills and voting in the House Chambers. What better way for the students to gain a deep understanding of Ohio’s legislative process?”

The summer reading program was designed to encourage students to visit their local libraries and to get them engaged in the exciting world of books and reading. To enter to win, contestants were asked to write down five books they read on a special bookmark and drop the bookmark off at a local library. Winning bookmarks were selected at random.
