The League of Women Voters of Pennsylvania is proud to announce the winners of the fourth annual League of Women Voters of Pennsylvania High School Video Contest. The winners were standout submissions, selected by a panel of eight judges from across the state with political and media expertise.
Students from across the state submitted videos on the theme “What Makes Democracy Work?” The contest was open to high school students between 13 and 19 years of age who were invited create 30-second video Public Service Announcements highlighting the importance of elections at every level of government.
Judges evaluated the videos on how well the video communicated that theme, how likely the video was to encourage active participation in voting, and how effectively the creators used the tools available to further the message.
The first place winner will receive a $1000 prize. The second place prize is $500 and the third place winner will receive $250.
We are pleased to announce this year’s winners:
• 1st place: Nicholas DeMarchis, East Pennsboro Area High School – vote.
• 2nd place: Andrew Moyer and Jack Hughes, Radnor High School – Your Voice, Your Vote
• 3rd place: Payton White, Indiana Area Senior High School – Make It A Legacy
