FRANKFORT, KY (1/19/12) - In response to requests from around Kentucky, the Secretary of State’s office has extended by eight days the deadline for its annual essay and slogan contests, which expand civic awareness of students who will soon be eligible to vote in local, state and national elections.
“I’m thrilled that additional students want to participate in the essay and slogan competitions,” said Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes. “Increased involvement shows that the programs are achieving their purpose of encouraging civic involvement. With the deadline originally falling over the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday weekend, I am glad to be able to accommodate more entrants by extending it.”
The Secretary of State will announce the winners—who will receive monetary awards—no later than the end of March, and their work will be posted on the Secretary of State’s website.
