For the fourth consecutive year, LWVPA will be promoting a high school video contest inviting students to highlight the importance of voting.
The theme this year is "What Makes Democracy Work?"
Confidence in democracy among Millennials is at an all-time low. This contest will invite students to think about the values and structures essential to a functioning representative democracy. Our goal is to remind students - and all who see their videos - that civic engagement and public attention are essential factors of a strong democracy.
As in the past three years, the videos will be 30 seconds in length and top entries will be used as public service announcements in future election seasons. The top prize will be $1000, with a second prize of $500 and third prize of $250. Students can work alone or in teams. Any student between 13 and 19 currently enrolled in high school or an equivalent academic program in Pennsylvania is eligible.
Winners will be announced on April 15. Past winners are available for view on our LWVPA Video Contest channel.

ENGAGING AND EMPOWERING VOTERS
The League of Women Voters of Pennsylvania (LWVPA) is a grassroots citizen engagement organization dedicated to encouraging informed and active participation in government by all Pennsylvanians, working to increase understanding of major local, state, and national public policy issues, and influencing public policy through education and advocacy. The League never supports or opposes a candidate or political party yet helps voters to learn about government issues and candidates.
TOGETHER WE MAKE DEMOCRACY WORK!
