We are so excited to announce that the 2nd Annual LWVPA High School Video Contest has officially begun! This year’s theme is: “Your Voice, Your Vote – Be Heard!”

The contest is open to any team of students or individual student between 13 and 19 years of age and currently enrolled in high school in Pennsylvania.  Contestants will create 30-second video Public Service Announcements that encourage participation in the democratic process.

The prize for first place will be $1000, with a second place prize of $500 and third place prize of $250. The contest begins on January 15, 2016; the submission deadline is midnight, March 1, 2016. Winners will be announced on April 1, 2016.

We had some great submissions last year, but we are hoping for even more entries from across the state in 2016.  You are the key to making this happen – please spread news of the contest to friends, neighbors, local libraries, local high schools and other community organizations.

If you would like to send our official press release to your local papers, the link is below.

Together we can make the 2nd Annual LWVPA High School Video Contest even better than last year! Thank you in advance for all your work, and a special thank you to the Philadelphia League of Women Voters for sponsoring this year’s contest!

In League,
