CHILDREN'S WEEK AT THE NEVADA LEGISLATURE - March 11-14, 2019

The purpose of Children's Week is to represent Nevada's Children and help stregnthen families in areas such as school readiness, children's physical and mental health, and child safety and security. For the past four legislative sessions, over 80 different non-profit, corporate, philantropic, and state agencies and organizations have joined together as we strengthened Nevada's families by sharing a commitment to improve our communities through events and outreach efforts aimed at promoting the health, safety, and well-being of our children.

Each day will focus on topics related to the day's theme, scheduled below:
  • Monday, March 11 - Children's Day
  • Tuesday, March 12 - School Readiness
  • Wednesday, March 13 - Children's Safety
  • Thursday, March 14 - Children's Health
