Washtenaw NOW Essay Contest

Celebrating 100 Years of Women’s Suffrage 

The local chapter of the League of Women Voters is spearheading a county-wide effort to celebrate the 100-year anniversary of women winning the right to vote. Organizations county-wide are planning activities and exhibits in 2020 to celebrate this milestone and to educate the community. After a struggle that lasted nearly 75 years, (most) women in the United States finally won the right to vote with the passage of the 19th amendment in 1920. While it took another 45 years (with the passage of the Voting Rights Act in 1965) for African Americans to be more fully enfranchised, the milestone is certainly worth celebrating. And we can all be proud that Michigan was one of the first states to ratify the 19th amendment, doing so on June 10, 1919. 

The local chapter of the National Organization for Women, Washtenaw NOW, is sponsoring an essay competition focused on the theme: Finding your Voice. We are inviting high school students to participate. Details of the essay contest are included in a separate document

Since March is Women’s History Month, we have tentatively scheduled the award event for the evening of Thursday, March 19, 2020. 

Questions can be addressed to Margo Czinski--mczinski@comcast.net 

Deadline:  February 14, 2020
