Kentucky Extends Entry Deadline For Statewide Essay & Slogan Contests

The deadline for students to submit entries for the statewide essay & slogan contests has been extended to December 31, 2020.

Posted: Dec 22, 2020 10:29 PM

Kentucky Secretary of State Michael Adams extends the entry deadline for the statewide essay contest for students in grades 9 - 12, and a statewide slogan contest for grades 6 - 8 to 5 P.M. on December 31, 2020.

The Secretary of State will award prizes and recognize winners in a public ceremony.

“My first interest in politics and public affairs came at the same age as that of the young people who will participate in these contests. I hope this opportunity inspires them,” said Adams.

The slogan contest will help select a slogan for Secretary Adams’ new Frederick Douglass Award program, which will promote and recognize voter registration efforts among Kentucky high school students.The essay contest’s question presented is, “What changes should Kentucky make to its election system, and why?” The contest limits suggestions to those which would not require a constitutional amendment, and limits essays to 1,000 words.

The Tri-State is about to witness a metric ton of change over the next 36 hours or so, but before we get to the meat of the forecast let's focus on the hearer and the now - after seeing an absolutely gorgeous start to the work week with afternoon highs nearing the 70° mark and little to no cloud cover, clear skies will linger through the evening ahead and into tomorrow morning as temperature gradually dwindle into the upper 30s and low 40s area-wide. We'll fall to 42° in Evansville setting the stage for yet another mild, albeit far less quiet Tuesday ahead.
