FIND YOUR POLITICAL VOICE, IN 90 SECONDS OR LESS


Attention students attending high school in New York City or Westchester County*:

You’ve been nominated to enter the Con Edison Get Out the Vote Video Contest. The freedom to vote is the hallmark of our democracy. It is both a privilege and a civic duty.


Show us why voting is important to you or someone in your life in an original video. Just shoot and upload a video that delivers the message in 90 seconds or less. Entries will be evaluated on their artistic quality and how well and creatively they illustrate the contest’s message.


The first place winner scores an Apple gift card worth $1,000. Second- and third-place winners finish with Apple gift cards worth $500 and $250, respectively.


Every voice counts. You don’t have to wait until you turn 18 to use yours.
