Empower your students’ voice in the political process! Invite them to write a letter to the 2016 presidential candidates sharing their thoughts on how government can be more effective.

The PBS LearningMedia 50 for 50 contest is open to students in grades 6-12. Two students – one middle school and one high school – will win a trip to Las Vegas to view the final Presidential debate with the media.

All Kentucky students entered in the national 50 for 50 contest will also be automatically entered for the KET’s local 50 for 50 sweepstakes!

KET will randomly select two local student winners, one from grades 6-8 and one from grades 9-12. Each winner will receive a Chromebook.  Their teachers will also receive a $250 gift card for their classrooms. Local winners in the KET sweepstakes will be notified by phone or by email to verify eligibility.

Only national contest entries will be eligible for KET’s local sweepstakes. All entries are to be submitted to PBS by the student’s classroom teacher by September 21st.
