Information for Teachers


The Democracy & Me: Share Your Voice through Poetry contest encourages K-12 students to think about the importance of community, civic engagement, and the rights and responsibilities of citizenship and democracy. In developing creative poetry or spoken word responses to the Contest questions, students can also reflect on how their voice offers a unique medium to express one’s identity, culture, and connection to community.
