2020 Student Essay Contest

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit invites you to join us on September 17, 2020, at 2:30 p.m. ET via live-stream for our Constitution Day Program honoring the winners of the 2020 High School Essay Contest.

2020 marks the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment to the United States Constitution, extending the right to vote to women and expanding on the principle of equality. Students were asked to share their thoughts on "What barriers remain today in exercising the right to vote? What changes, if any, would you make to protect or expand voting rights?”
