Mis­sis­sippi Sec­re­tary of State Del­bert Hose­mann vis­ited Over­street El­e­men­tary School for Pro­mote the Vote where he dis­cussed pol­i­tics, vot­ing and Mis­sis­sippi his­tory and where it is projected for the fu­ture.

This year's Pro­mote the Vote theme is Mis­sis­sippi's Bi­cen­ten­nial. The pro­gram in­cludes an art and es­say con­test with sub­mis­sions due Dec. 1.

The Pro­mote the Vote pro­gram is open to all stu­dents and teach­ers in kin­der­garten through 12th grade. Par­tic­i­pa­tion is also avail­able to pri­vate, parochial and home school as­so­ci­a­tions.

Within the pro­gram, there are two cat­e­gories for the Pro­mote the Vote con­test. One is a vis­ual arts cat­e­gory fea­tur­ing an il­lus­tra­tion called "My Mis­sis­sippi." Stu­dents are en­cour­aged to iden­tify what af­fects them the most in their re­gion of the state.

There is also a writ­ing cat­e­gory ti­tled "Mov­ing For­ward" where stu­dents will write an es­say iden­ti­fy­ing what he or she con­sid­ers to be one of the most im­por­tant fu­ture is­sues fac­ing the re­gion they live in to­day. In the es­say stu­dents are asked to de­scribe the is­sue and their pro­posal for how cit­i­zens and elected of­fi­cials should ad­dress the is­sue.
