Speak Up! Audio Essay Contest for Students

This is a past event

The University of Delaware invites its students to join the campus-wide conversation with "Speak Up!" the third annual audio essay contest hosted by the Center for Political Communication. What does democracy mean to you? Where do you think democracy is headed? How do you fit in? How do you see your role as a citizen in our democracy? Have you ever wanted or needed to defend your own rights or ideas? Submit a 2- to 4-minute recorded essay about your experience.


The Speak Up! contest is open to students currently enrolled in University of Delaware degree or certificate programs. Entries must be electronically submitted by 11:59 pm on Friday, December 6, 2019. First Prize is $500, Second Prize is $250, Third Prize is $100, and three Honorable Mention Prizes of $50 each.
