BYU Center for Study of Europe sponsors art, essay competition for public school students

The Brigham Young University Center for the Study of Europe and International Outreach are sponsoring a Europe essay contest for middle and high school students and an art contest for K-6 students in the intermountain region.

All essay and art submissions are due Monday, May 24.

The essay contest, titled "Europe: Past, Present and Future," and the art contest with the theme "A Day in _______ (country name)," allow International Outreach, a program created by BYU's David M. Kennedy Center for International Studies, to build a community of European scholars and to generate interest in European studies.

For the essay contest, students must write a persuasive essay based on research and original ideas in response to one of the topics listed on the entry form. Students compete in two categories: grades 7-9 and 10-12.

The winners in each age group will receive a $100 award and two finalists will receive $50 awards. The schools of all winners and finalists will receive a $100 award and a set of "CultureGrams" for their school library.

For the art contest, first- through third-place winners will receive a $25 award and 10 honorable mentions will receive $10. The schools for the top three winners will receive $100 and the European "CultureGrams."

For more information, visit the CSE Web site at http://europe.byu.edu, or call Brenda Wadley at (801) 422-6277.

400 million voting records show persistent gaps in voter turnout by race, age, and political affiliation

August 10, 2022
A new study from BYU and the University of Virginia analyzed 400 million voter records from elections in 2014 and 2016 and found that minority citizens, young people, and those who support the Democratic Party are much less likely to vote than whites, older citizens, and Republican Party supporters. Moreover, those in the former groups are also more likely to live in areas where their neighbors are less likely to vote.
