CIRI again held a Youth Vote program to help CIRI descendants learn more about the company and its annual meeting voting process. Participants, who must be 17 or younger, study CIRI’s election issues and vote in a mock CIRI Board election and on the resolutions brought forward by shareholders.
A total of 18 youths (10 from the 7-12 grade bracket, and 8 from the pre-K through sixth grade) participated in the program this year. CIRI’s Shareholder Participation Committees helped with the youth voting process. Six prizes were given away to youth who participated, including an iPod Nano, iPod Shuffles, and gift cards.
