Florida Commission on the Status of Women
Announces First Annual Women’s History Video Contest
Tallahassee, FL — The Florida Commission on the Status of Women seeks entries for the 2020 Women’s History Video Contest from students in grades 9-12. The Commission invites students to participate in order to gain a more thorough appreciation of women’s contributions throughout history, to celebrate those contributions, and to increase awareness of the contributions specifically of Florida women, past and present.
“As we begin 2020, we hope that this contest will inspire our high school students to learn more about the women and men who contributed to such a major turning point in our country’s history,” says FCSW Commission Chair Rita Barreto Craig. “The Florida Women’s History Video Contest was established to encourage young people to think creatively about our nation’s great history and learn about the importance of voting.”
Winning students will be awarded prizes and recognized at a special ceremony during the Women’s Equity Day Summit to be held in Sarasota on August 20, 2020. All winner’s names will be released to the media and published on the Commission’s website.
