How could the arts change your school?
Now, more than ever, students are joining local, national and global conversations about the issues most important to them. They are using their voices to create change, make a positive impact and speak up for their future. This year, the Student Voices Campaign wanted to hear from students at the very beginning of their advocacy journey and launched a statewide competition to decide what the prompt should be.
The Student Voices Campaign is an annual statewide competition for students in grades 7-12. Are your students participating? Learn HOW to get your class engaged.
