    What would you do if you were President of the United States for just a day?

    That’s what the National Archives and the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library want to know.

    Both are encouraging children and visitors of all ages to participate in the “Your Day as President” event.

    The activity invites families to envision what they would do in the White House.

    The "Your Day as President" event is part of a celebration of what would have been Reagan's 100th birthday. One of his personal diaries will be on display through July 5.

    The family event begins Friday and runs through June 20, from 10 a.m.-4 p.m., outside the National Archives’ Public Vaults exhibit.

    The personalized diary entries that families create at the Archives will be shared with former first lady Nancy Reagan.

    Select entries will also be featured on the Archives News Photostream on Flickr. Participants will also get a discount on all personal diaries available in the Archives Shop during the event.

    You can find the National Archives Building on Constitution Avenue at 9th Street, NW.
