Mississippi Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann visited Overstreet Elementary School for Promote the Vote where he discussed politics, voting and Mississippi history and where it is projected for the future.
This year’s Promote the Vote theme is Mississippi’s Bicentennial Birthday. The program includes an art and essay contest with submissions due Dec. 1.
The Promote the Vote program is open to all students and teachers in kindergarten through twelfth grade. Participation is also available to private, parochial and home school associations.
Within the program, there are two categories for the Promote the Vote contest. One is a visual arts category featuring an illustration called “My Mississippi.” Students are encouraged to identify what affects them the most in their region of the state.
