After a school field trip to the New Hampshire State House this fall, two elementary students have begun a live lesson in civics. The boys want to make milk the state’s official beverage.
According to a report in The Citizen of Laconia, a group of students already have contacted their local representatives to help make apple cider the state beverage, but fourth-graders Jeremy LaChance and his friend, Cole Winkelmann, believe milk should be chosen instead. "We don't drink apple cider more than milk," LaChance told the newspaper. "And we have been drinking milk from the whole time we've been at school."
The two have been in contact with dairy farmers in the state, as well as their state representatives. A vote on a bill naming the state beverage is expected in January.
