Allendale Columbia Kids Vote: Top 20 Places to Take Kids in Greater Rochester

As voted by Rochester-area KIDS: 2015

A group of Rochester-area kids from Allendale Columbia School saw KidsOutAndAbout's list of the Top 20 Places to take kids as voted on by parents, and decided to design their own survey to recognize the kids' perspective on which places deserve to win the top spots. Kasandra Stark's 4th grade class, with some input from, took on the project.

For four months, teams of kids in Ms. Stark's class researched places to take kids in Rochester, interviewed the people at those places who make things happen, and advocated for their own favorites with persuasive speaking and writing with their classmates. They devised a system for the kids in grades K-5 so they could vote for their favorites.
