Melania Launches Cool New Contest for Kids

( – Melania Trump is doing something really cool to get children involved in honoring a special part of our history. She’s encouraging the kids to use art to learn more about the women’s suffrage movement.

This summer, the United States will mark the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment, which gave women the right to vote. It was adopted on August 18, 1920.

And now a century later, the first lady wants to celebrate by putting together an art project called “Building the Movement: America’s Youth Celebrate 100 Years of Women’s Suffrage.”

This project will highlight artwork by students in each of the US states and territories. The contest is open to all kids in grades 3 to 12.

Melania said she hopes the project will lead to important conversations about equality and peaceful protests.

Submissions are due by July 6. Each piece should depict events, individuals, and objects that represent the suffrage movement.

The White House will be choosing one piece of artwork from each state and territory to be included in an exhibit in August. The art will be presented either online or in a physical display based on the current coronavirus guidelines.

Good luck!
