On October 29. 2014, Valentine Middle School was one of 78 schools participating in the Nebraska Student Vote. Student voting offers a wonderful learning opportunity for Nebraska students in connection with the 2014 general election. The program, geared to middle schools and high schools, is designed to promote civics education to advance our American democracy. It is hoped that students who participate in the program will be more likely to become active citizens and lifelong voters.

Depending on grade level, students participated in the following activities: learned about voter eligibility and registration, basic differences between the major political party platforms, and duties of various offices. Students also read and discussed candidate biographies.

Valentine Middle School went one step beyond the Nebraska Student Vote; they also voted for candidates at the county level using a sample ballot and voting booth. VMS students would like to publicly thank Thomas Elliott, Cherry County Election Commissioner, for arranging this.
