Peeking out of the Voting Booth by Monte Paulsen
(1981 Scholastic/Kodak Photo Awards winner)

It’s Election Day! Countless Americans are heading to the polls today to decide who will lead our country for the next four years. Voting is the way we ensure our voices are heard, and we want to hear from you on this key value of our democracy.

Each year, through the generous sponsorship of the Maurice R. Robinson Fund, the Creativity & Citizenship Award provides three prizes of $1,000 each to young artists and writers who take on a topical and important theme chosen by the Alliance and our partners at the National Constitution Center. This year, we’re asking students to creatively express their views on the importance of Voting.
