Democracy & Me’s Student Voices Competition Set to Return in 2023

UPDATE: Full contest information and submission is now available!

WVXU’s Democracy & Me outreach program is pleased to announce that this year’s Student Voices Competition will officially kick off soon. Open to area high school students and supported by The Charles H. Dater Foundation, the Student Voices Competition encourages creativity, thoughtful introspection and diverse perspectives on a topic relevant to today’s students.

This year’s prompt will be announced here on Monday, January 30.

Prizes: $1,000 for the best essay, $1,000 for the best creative entry (artwork, audio, video or other), and $500 for an outstanding runner-up in any category. $500 will go to a randomly selected teacher/adviser with students participating in the contest.

We will feature all the top-scoring finalists on our website, and top candidates will be invited to display their work during the Student Voices Showcase where the winners will be announced.
