We want to showcase student involvement this political season on the campaign trail, in the classroom and beyond.  

Teachers should encourage students to share how they are getting involved in their community.


What should students submit?

Any active political involvement. For example, these could include: a candidate sign in their yard (national or local), participating in the campaign trail, participating in student government or a local rally.

How can students share?

Upload a photo of themselves to Facebook, Instagram or Twitter and include the hashtag #BeAVoter. We will select photos to spotlight on the Secretary of State Facebook page weekly.
