The New York Women’s Vote Centennial Project is a partnership on the NYS governor and lt. governor and the American Federation of Teachers and First Book celebrating the 100th anniversary of women’s suffrage in New York on November 6, 2017. The competition invites teachers to develop classroom projects and activities to mark the suffrage centennial. Fifteen winners will be chosen.

Projects may focus on women’s history, civic engagement, the democratic process, equal rights, or a related topic. Educators and students are encouraged to explore the question: 100 years from now, when future generations look back, what will our equal rights legacy be?  Projects for any grade, K-12, will be considered. October 11, 2017 is the application deadline.
