Episode 53: Our Student Voices Competition Is Back!

We’ve just launched Democracy & Me’s 2022 Student Voices Competition, an opportunity for young people from across the WVXU listening area and beyond to speak their truth—or write it, draw it, make it sing… and maybe win a thousand bucks. For contest details including this year’s theme, complete rules, and a submission link (note the deadline: March 4), please visit www.DemocracyandMe.org.

And for inspiration, here’s an encore of our last Student Voices Competition showcase, featuring top-scoring entries by Djibril Dembele, Addison Thacker, Molly Moser, Tanvi Rakesh, Jessica Kang, Zoe Wooten, Abdul Arnaout, Sara Walls, Audrey Zelinski, and Addi Schultz. We invite you to follow their creative lead and get ready to blow the judges’ minds with your own contest entry.
