Six high school students from Sarasota’s public schools have won awards from the League of Women Voters of Sarasota County’s YVote Contest for their essay or poster entries expressing their views on why it is important for every eligible person to vote. The students received their awards for their winning entries on November 28, 2023, during Sarasota School Board’s Moments of Pride Special Event.

First place winners received $500; those in second place received $300; third place winners received $200. Essay winners were: 1st Place - Hayden Heaney, Venice High School, Grade 10 for his essay, The Pivotal Role of American Democracy. 2nd Place - Addyson Domian, Venice High School, Grade 12, for her essay, To the 44%. 3rd Place - Kathryn Domian, Pine View High School, Grade 10, for her essay, Tiny But Mighty Spark.
