Two APH Students Win Statewide Democracy Challenge

Each year, the League of Women Voters of Massachusetts (LWVMA) sponsors a student video contest. This year, they held the "Democracy Challenge" Student Video Contest. The league asked high school students in Massachusetts to create 30-second videos answering the question "What did you learn about our democracy in 2020?" And what a year for our democracy!
