Maine students in grades 4-12 were invited to submit artwork and essays for this year’s Law Day contests sponsored by the Maine State Bar Association. This year’s theme was “Your Vote, Your Voice, Our Democracy: The 19th Amendment at 100.”
This year’s theme explores the centennial of the transformative constitutional amendment that guaranteed the right of citizens to vote would not be denied or abridged by the United States or any state on account of sex. The women’s suffrage movement expanded representative democracy and inspired other popular movements for constitutional change and reform. Reflection on that movement reveals complexity and tensions over race and class that remain part of the ongoing story of the 19th Amendment and its legacies.
Winning artwork and essays will be published online and in the Maine Bar Journal.
Law Day was established in 1958 by President Dwight Eisenhower to mark the nation’s commitment to the rule of law.
