On May 23 teachers and high school students, and American diplomats gathered at the American Corner Bucharest to honor the winners of the student video contest “Why Every Vote Matters”.
This contest was launched on February 13, 2019 to raise awareness about civic engagement and the importance of voting. The Embassy received 76 videos from 30 high schools and colleges in Romania. The videos were judged on effectiveness in raising awareness about civic engagement and voting, on originality and creativity, and on quality by a jury composed of Americans affiliated with the U.S. Diplomatic Mission to Romania.
