PCC Student Wins Voting Video Contest

Garrett Ledoux

In Escambia County, Florida—where PCC resides—the Supervisor of Elections Office sponsored a video contest to encourage voter participation. Of the many who submitted videos, PCC student Garrett Ledoux (Jr., KS) won the contest and was awarded a $500 scholarship and certificate.

His video portrays young people shuffling together in silence, their mouths covered with orange tape that reads: “I didn’t vote.” The images evoke a sense of urgency to have a voice by casting a vote.

In addition to earning him a scholarship, Garrett’s video will also air on television.
