FEBRUARY 11, 2020―Last fall, the University of Delaware's Center for Political Communication launched its third annual audio essay contest, "Speak Up," and University of Delaware students joined the campus-wide conversation with personal and emotional audio essays. Students submitted 2- to 4-minute recorded essays, considering these questions: What does democracy mean to you? Where do you think democracy is headed? How do you fit in? How do you see your role as a citizen in our democracy? The project ran in tandem with the CPC's National Agenda speaker series, "Direction Democracy," which featured nationally known speakers who discussed where we have been, where we are going, and the current state of democracy in the United States.
The Speak Up! program is presented in collaboration with the University Writing Center, the University of Delaware Library, Museums and Press, Delaware Public Media (WDDE 91.1, WMPH 91.7 and WMHS 88.1), the College of Arts & Sciences Journalism Program, the University of Delaware Department of Communication, WVUD Radio (91.3), and the University of Delaware Provost.
Move this whole section up, swapping places with the section above it.
The CPC presents the top ten finalists for the Speak Up! audio essay contest. Judging was based on content; originality and creativity; delivery; and production value. The winners will be selected from the top ten essays and will receive cash awards of $500 to $50 (first place, second place, third place and three honorable mentions). Delaware Public Media and WVUD may broadcast the top essays. The winners will be announced at an awards presentation in March 2020. Winners who are unable to attend will be notified by email.
