We Day Minnesota is a Huge Hit with Local Kids [AUDIO] [PHOTOS]

Maddy Erickson

I was so bummed to miss all the action yesterday at the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul. I was lucky enough to have a friend on the “inside” who went and couldn’t say enough great things about We Day Minnesota.  Kennedy Erickson an 8th grader at South Junior High School in St. Cloud told us all about this once in a lifetime experience.

We Day was the first event hosted in Minnesota and the second We Day event to take place in the U.S.  Over 18,000 students and educators from over 400 schools across the state attended.

Everyone from the Jonas Brothers to her Majesty Queen Noor of Jordan were on hand to entertain and educate the youth in attendance.  X-Factor’s Fifth Harmony (pictured above) and Disney star Bridgit Mendler (pictured below) all stopped by with a positive message to share.  Pop superstar Demi Lovato joined the festivities via Skype and even former President George W. Bush’s daughter Barbara Pierce Bush was on hand to speak about the Global Health Corps.

Other featured performers and speakers included Carly Rae Jepsen (Call Me Maybe), Minnesota Governor Mark Dayton and Actress Mia Farrow. Together We Day and We Act provide a blueprint for raising a generation of active local and global citizens. Learn more by Clicking Here.
