The League of Women Voters, Deschutes County (LWVDC) believes students are the best advocates to increase the voting turnout in their age group. To encourage that advocacy, LWVDC sponsors an annual student essay contest: Y-Essay! The subject of the essay is “Why Vote?” (The ‘Y’ is for Yes, Youth, and Why?) The contest is open to high school seniors in Deschutes County. The winning essayists will each receive an award of $500. The award for the winning essay(s) comes from the donation fund dedicated to the Y-Essay Contest. The number of winners depends not only on the judging criteria but also on the amount of money we have in the donation fund.

Since our inception, the League of Women Voters fought for voter access and participation and worked to ensure historically underrepresented communities’ voices are welcomed and heard throughout our democracy – all while maintaining our commitment to nonpartisanship and fostering an informed electorate. The leaders we elect make decisions that affect our daily lives. Elections are our chance to stand up for what matters most to us and to have an impact on the issues that affect us, our communities, our families and our future. We make voting easier through varied voter education programs.
