Memes may be elementary when it comes to lighthearted fare on the World Wide Web. However, when it comes to an elementary class in Regina, they are ammunition in a challenge of wits.

Grade 7 and 8 students in Mr. Aaron Warner's class (follow the kids on Twitter @MYclassroomSK) at Douglas Park School are currently camped out on the #elxn42meme Twitter hashtag.

The group of budding politicos have taken to challenging other groups of Saskatchewan students, on Twitter, to a meme war.

Warner said the action online is just one part of his class's election immersion.

"We're in the heat of a major project where kids are designing election campaigns and will vote at the end of the week," he said.

Warner explained more than one million students, like his own, are currently working on fake budgets, ad campaigns and election platforms as part of the national Student Vote project

"[The memes] convey where their party sat on different issues, or the election itself or our political system," Warner said. "The kids really like it, they come in the mornings and say 'Mr. Warner, we got a new one!'"
