Hope Anderson, a third grader at Homecroft Elementary School, won an essay contest about the capitol. She called it a very pretty building, said she loves the horses on top, and also made a prediction about who might work there in the future:

"I think that one thing that might change at the capitol in the future is there might be a woman governor. Maybe me!"

She also suggested that schools start teaching kids earlier about what happens at the capitol.

Friday's event kicked of a weekend of celebration at the capitol that includes fireworks, music, and political panel discussions.
