Do students on your campus know how to register to vote? Do they know where to vote? Does your college provide the information students need to vote? Unlike any other age group, young adults, particularly college students, face obstacles to get to the polls. They are in new communities and don’t know the requirements to register to vote, where to vote, or how to vote absentee back home. It is critical this year that we help students get the information they need to register and vote. And you can help!
Campus Vote Project is challenging students across the country to submit a short video (1-2 minutes) about student voting. The video could be about efforts your campus or student group will be doing to help students get to the polls this year or it could just be a fun video on why it’s important for students to vote this election. Be creative. Be original. Most importantly, have fun! The winning video will receive a $500 grant from Campus Vote Project to help in your campus’s efforts to get students to the polls. The grant will be given to the video that receives the highest number of “Likes” on the Campus Vote Project Facebook page. Visit our contest page to find out more!
Here’s how to enter: Shoot a 1-2 minute video on student voting. Feature parts of your campus or your school’s mascot if you can. Be creative and original. Upload your video to the Campus Vote Project page. First you must “Like” Campus Vote Project. Then click on “Photo/Video” below the Campus Vote Project banner. Upload the video and in the description put in description “Entry for Campus Vote Project Video Contest”. Include your school’s name and student group in the description. Share with your friends and others on your campus and ask them to come to the Campus Vote Project page and like your video.
