Learning How a Bill Becomes Law
Chatham Elementary 4th Grade Students, Staff Congratulated by Gov. Rauner
Shortly after Gov. Bruce Rauner signed into law the bill declaring Sweet Corn as the official State vegetable, he met with many Chatham Elementary fourth grade students and staff at the Chatham Jaycees Sweet Corn Festival shucking event. Gov. Rauner gave copies of the signed bill to the students who authored it and congratulated them on their hard work. The students began work on the bill at the beginning of the school year when they were studying Illinois state symbols and questioned why there was an absence of an official state vegetable. They then researched all the vegetables grown in Illinois, considered the economy, surveyed community members, and came to a consensus that Sweet Corn should become the official state vegetable of Illinois. Thanks to the support of Senator Sam McCann and Representative Raymond Poe for sponsoring the bill, and all the senators and representatives who also signed on! They helped make education come to life for these students and created memories that will last a lifetime for these students. Watch the "germination" of the Sweet Corn Bill! https://youtu.be/RJYIKRs9uyE
