Kidizenship, a newly formed organization based in Nashville, is set to launch a digital youth civics magazine. As a non-partisan media platform for teens and tweens that merges civics education with creative self-expression and community action, it will also be hosting 6 contests that celebrate what kids have to say about their country.
The current contest, Sing Your Anthem, invites kids to write and perform their own national anthems, giving voice to their values and vision for their America. These are songs that describe what is beautiful about their communities and their shared nation and that inspire and unite people across divisions. Honoring the past, this will give an opportunity for kids to participate in democracy, celebrate community, and envision a better future. Judges for the Sing Your Anthem contest include Darius Rucker, Rhiannon Giddens, Jason Isbell, and Genesis Be.
The deadline for submissions is Oct. 12, and will be judged in two age categories: 8-12 & 13-18. For a full list of rules and to submit your song, click here.
