Competition Overview:
This competition is a non-political civic engagement activity designed to provide an avenue for student participation in the democratic process. The project will increase voter awareness as well as registration and pre-registration among young members of our community. Students will leave with a greater understanding of elections. This program offers an opportunity for ASB, political science clubs or other service-learning clubs to continue work collaboratively and impact the community through online platforms.

 

Students:
Your goal is to promote the vote! Encourage your peers to get involved, register or pre-register to vote. During this time of uncertainty, you can still reach out to your classmates and inspire them. Get creative and help promote the vote online!

 

Contest Rules:

  1. Students will create a post promoting the vote, upload the post on Instagram tagging both their school and Monterey County Elections (@MontereyCountyElections) with the hashtag #promotethevote.

  2. The post must be school appropriate and politically neutral (apolitical) in nature.

  3. Each post will give a point to their school. There is a one-post limit per student.

  4. At the end of the first week, we will give a shoutout to the schools in the lead. At the end of the second week, we will announce the winners.

The high school with the highest rate of participation wins. Remember that this is a non-political competition. Posts that do not comply will not be counted.
