“The Voting Process: Does your voice count?” was the theme of the Kids Voting Brownsville Spring 2012 Art and Multimedia Contests that were open to students in all Brownsville schools.
Winners from among the more than 70 submissions were announced in late April after being judged by members of the University of Texas at Brownsville and Texas Southmost College community and members of the Brownsville community.
The contests gave Brownsville students the opportunity to display their knowledge of civic responsibilities in creative ways. Elementary students’ artwork was judged on creativity and adherence to theme. Middle school students’ multimedia projects – included photo stories, PowerPoint presentations or videos – were judged on creativity, adherence to theme and effort.
