"Solutions from Those with the Most to Lose" Presented by Project SOAR
Student Essay Writing Contest

Habitually, assessments and policy development do not involve actual commentary from all that were or will be affected.  As consequence, skewed and incomplete conclusions repeatedly serve as an appalling platform to guide decisions and achieve rational outcomes.

In an effort to provide and stimulate voice to those who are most affected by the actions of others, the 100 Black Men of Madison initiates, the youth essay contest, "Solutions From Those With The Most To Lose."

Students are asked to choose one stated topic, see below and write an essay of at least 1,000 words (but should not to exceed 1,250).

This contest will begin 10 May and close 14 September. Entries will be submitted on line. And all area high school and middle school students are eligible.

Democratic Party Election
Democrats, Please Vote!

Primary elections—in which registered voters select a candidate whom they believe should be a political party's candidate to run in the general election—do more than select nominees. They often reflect a party's self-definition and sense of unity.

According to the Wisconsin Democratic Party's Facebook page, "Wisconsin’s Democrats are fighting successfully to protect our rights, our opportunities, and our way of life." The state party maintains 71 affiliated county-level parties and eight issue-based caucuses. (Source:ballotpedia.org)
