Secretary of State Husted Sponsors Public Service Announcement Contest, Calls On Ohio’s Youth to Participate
Contest to give kids chance to “school their parents” on the rights and responsibilities of voting.

COLUMBUS – In an effort to remind Ohioans about the importance of voting, Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted today announced the start of a public service announcement (PSA) contest open to Ohio’s school-aged children. The PSA contest will engage young Ohioans to think about the importance of voting and remind registered voters to participate in elections. Winning entries will be used in a marketing effort for the 2014 General Election.

“Voting is not only a right, but also a responsibility,” Secretary Husted said. “My hope is that this contest instills a greater sense of duty towards voting and being active participants in our democracy among Ohio’s current voters and our future electorate.”

Entitled School Your Parents, this contest gives students in grades 3-12 the chance to design a poster or create a video explaining the importance of voting to them using the theme Vote! It’s Your Right. It’s Your Responsibility. Chosen submissions will help to encourage all Ohio voters, including their parents, to vote.

Submissions for the School Your Parents Poster and Video contest must be received by March 14, 2014, and can be submitted electronically or by mail. Posters should be 11 inches by 17 inches and videos should be 15 to 30 seconds in length. The winning submissions will be selected at the end of March 2013 and featured during the 2014 General Election.
