2020 will mark the 100th anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution giving women the right to vote. It is also the centennial of the founding of the League of Women Voters. In recognition of these events, the League of Women Voters of Lane County will be celebrating with events throughout 2020. To kick things off, LWVLC and WordCrafters are co-sponsoring an essay contest with cash prizes for high school students in Lane County on the topic of Women and the Vote.
