Lights! Camera! LWVMA Video Contest!

Interested in getting involved with a high school program sponsored by the League? You and your members can be part of a fun and exciting initiative to boost youth civic awareness! LWVMA seeks volunteers now to publicize, judge, and sponsor its "There Oughta Be a Law" Student Video Contest.

The next two-year session of the Massachusetts state legislature begins in January. LWVMA is asking Massachusetts high school students to submit two-minute videos letting our state legislators know what new legislation should be passed to keep Massachusetts healthy, productive, safe, and clean. First place wins $1000; second place wins $500; and third place wins $250.

The contest is open to any Massachusetts high school student in grades 9-12. Entries may be submitted online starting February 1. The deadline for submissions is March 31. Judging will take place in April, and winners will be announced in May.

League volunteers are needed to help publicize the contest at local high schools and community centers. We also need judges and sponsors. Questions or want to get involved? E-mail LWVMA Executive Director Meryl Kessler at or call 617-523-2999.
