Tallahassee, FL -- April 3, 2011 -- 6:53p.m --

Folks in Florida's Capitol have a constant reminder that this week is dedicated to the kids.

United Way of Florida is sponsoring the 16th annual Children's Week at the Capital.

Teachers and Kids across the State cut out thousands of paper hands, that will hang from the Capitol Rotunda until Friday(4/8).

United Way Volunteers say, the hands are symbols to remind law makers of the importance of children.

Especially, when making decisions to fund family and educational programs.

Jason Zaborske, The coordinator of the event says,"We hope the legislature takes a moment while they're going in between session and read some of these messages from kids about the future of Florida."

Monday (4/4) and Tuesday (4/5) about 100 vendors will be in the Capital Courtyard, educating folks on Children's Programs in Florida.

    This has grown up's and the teachers union all over it shame. Its bad enough that collage students where once called Useful Idiots for political reasons now their doing that to our children and that just ain't right IMO.

      Proper grammar and punctuation, please. I am not sure what you are trying to say. Is it bad that Legislators are reminded that their political spats have real-world consequences for people who cannot vote?
