The following is an example of a Governor’s Proclamation for World Baton Twirling Day, which is April 10, 2024. Feel free to use all or part and make it your own! It’s very easy to request a Governor’s proclamation. Simply call the Governor’s office in your state and ask to speak to the person who does proclamation. They will send you a form or direct you to a form on their website. It’s so easy! Proclamations are typically read in a state house or state senate. If they occur when state legislatures are not in session, they are often posted on the website. You will also typically receive a beautiful copy of the proclamation with the Governor’s gold seal.
