KidZania Kuwait, the exciting kid-sized metropolis, is about to conduct elections for the first KidZania CongreZZ in the Middle East.
The elections will see 20 appointed members of the CongreZZ, KidZania’s official legislative governmental body. The CongreZZ will make decisions that will contribute to the improvement of the overall KidZania experience and will prepare the elected members for their roles as future leaders in the real world by enabling them to participate actively in forums, debate sessions and other group activities.
Children between the ages of 7 and 12 years can register for the elections between the period of 2-12 October. The candidates will be shortlisted by an expert panel based on the children’s abilities to express, engage and participate in group discussions.
The election period will take place from 18-27 October. After public voting by other children at the KidZania facility, the elected members will meet every quarter to discuss ideas and voice opinions on the best methods to keep the KidZania spirit alive, current and socially relevant.
“Launching this innovative facet of KidZania reinforces our mission to develop our children’s all-round growth, by combining education and entertainment. The program will encourage children to become leaders who can bring about positive change, both inside & outside KidZania,” said Fernando Medroa, Vice President of Leisure and Entertainment at M.H. Alshaya Co.
The elections will be followed by an oath-taking ceremony, where the elected children will be officially sworn into office. The function will be attended by KidZania governors, ministers and other officials and VIP members.
Registration forms for children interested in running for the election will be available at the CongreZZ information desk in the KidZania Airport area, the CongreZZ application centre inside the facility and on the KidZania Kuwait website, http://www.kidzania.com.kw.
