There has been debate over the upcoming vote on a Duluth school levy, and students rallied downtown on Saturday to support it.
About 30 students from the East and Denfeld high schools held signs and called for honks from traffic along Superior Street Saturday morning.
Student leaders, like East Senior Billy Menor, said many of them cannot vote, but they hope residents will invest in future students.
"If both tiers of the levy were to pass there would be an average of a $4 increase in taxes for the City of Duluth, and our slogan, our motto is that we think the students of Duluth are worth $4 a month," Menor said.
Voters can also choose to support the first tier of the levy that would renew the school district's current funding without a tax increase.
The students said they will keep pushing for levy support until election day on Nov. 5.
