Since its founding in 1920, the League of Women Voters of Massachusetts has been a respected and trusted voice for citizen participation in our democracy.
We invite Massachusetts high school students to create and submit 30-second public service announcements to raise public awareness around the question of why should or why shouldn’t 16-year-olds have the right to vote.
Students can upload videos to the contest website between February 7 and March 31, 2020. The first-place award is $500; second-place, $250; and third-place, $100. All winners will be invited to attend an award ceremony at the Massachusetts State House, and winning videos will be publicized.
