Ever felt ignored?
Want to put a stop to it?
Voices of the Divide can help you do just that.
As part of the National Agenda theme of "As We Stand, Divided," the University of Delaware and the Center for Political Communication are hosting a campuswide conversation through Voices of the Divide, an audio essay contest.
The goal of the contest is to give those who feel
marginalized a chance to tell their stories. Following the theme of the National Agenda speaker series, which reflects on the divides of gender, geography, religion, politics and culture, the contest wants to hear how our country's divides have affected your life and the lives of those around you, including your family
Check out the full contest rules, but you have until 11:59 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 1, 2017, to submit your two- to four-minute essay. You could win $500, $250, $100 or $50 and have your voice heard on WDDE and WVUD.
The contest is presented in collaboration with the
Writing Center, Morris Library, the vice provost for diversity, WVUD Radio, Delaware Public Media and The Journalism Program.
