GET CREATIVE FOR A CHANCE TO WIN PRIZES
Enter Clark County Law Foundation's Let Freedom Ring Art Contest
Clark County Law Foundation’s (CCLF) Let Freedom Ring Art Contest provides a wonderful opportunity for students to learn about our legal system, justice, get creative and win prizes. The contest can be incorporated into a curriculum, offered as extra credit, or just done for fun.
The Let Freedom Ring Art Contest is open to students attending a public, private, or charter school, or being home schooled, within Clark County, Nevada and in grades K-12 or the equivalent. Only original individual submissions are accepted.
The 2019 Let Freedom Ring Art Contest theme is: "Your Voice, Your Vote, Our Democracy: The 19th Amendment at 100"
In 2019-2020, the United States is commemorating the centennial of the transformative constitutional amendment that guaranteed the right of citizens to vote would not be denied or abridged by the United States or any state on account of sex. American women fought for, and won, the vote through their voice and action.
The women’s suffrage movement forever changed America, expanding representative democracy and inspiring other popular movements for constitutional change and reform. Yet, honest reflection on the suffrage movement reveals complexity and tensions over race and class that remain part of the ongoing story of the Nineteenth Amendment and its legacies.
Participants are encouraged to use their creativity and originality to make a two-dimensional representation of an art piece (including, but not limited to, drawings, paintings, videos, photographs, graphic novels, comics, etc.), exploring the protections afforded to all of us by the Nineteenth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution and why the preservation of these principles is essential to our liberty.
All qualified participants under the age of 18 must have their parent or guardian sign the Parental Permission Release Form, and each Let Freedom Ring Art Contest Entry Form must be signed by an adult.
