The Virginia School Boards Association is holding a personal essay/speaking contest where the winner will have an opportunity to present before an audience of more than 300 school board members and administrators at the 2021 Virtual VSBA Conference on Education held July 20, 2021. Thank you to VACORP for sponsoring this year’s contest.

This is the first year the Virginia School Boards Association will hold this contest. We hope that this contest will bring out the very best in students’ writing and speaking efforts and allow our attendees to witness examples of the bright, thoughtful, and accomplished students from around the Commonwealth. This years topic is Can and Should Freedom of Expression and Civility Co-exist?

For more information on the contest and complete guidelines please view the guidebook attached.
