Art Contest

Visual images can reflect the values we hold dear. The art contest is an opportunity for students from K to 12 grade to create and complete a work that can have a positive influence on others. It is intended to help students cherish the freedoms they hold dear. The theme this year is based on this quote from the Declaration of Independence, “We hold these truths to be self-evident:  that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.” Entry deadline is January 16, 2018.

Essay Contest

Each year the Freedom Festival Essay Contest gives rise to expressions of patriotism from students in K-12th grades throughout Utah. The theme this year is based on this quote from the Declaration of Independence, “We hold these truths to be self-evident:  that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”  Entry deadline is January 16, 2018.

Speech Contest

Every year Utah High School students compete for financial rewards and the opportunity to speak at various Freedom Festival events. Students from 9th-12th grade are invited to submit special orations based on this quote from the Declaration of Independence, “We hold these truths to be self-evident:  that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”  Entry deadline is March 16, 2018.

Storytelling Contest

Everyone and everything has a story. Storytelling can be used to preserve culture and instill moral values. Histories have been passed on through story since the beginning of time. The storyteller’s education comes as he studies, writes, practices and then performs stories that include plot, characters and the narrative point of view. Education comes to listeners as they contemplate the characters in the story and draw conclusions from the plight of others. Storytelling is important in all of our lives. Students from K to 12th grade are invited to speak on the theme based on this quote from the Declaration of Independence, “We hold these truths to be self-evident:  that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”  Entry deadline is January 16, 2018.

Video Contest

We are seeking original, creative video presentations on the theme based on this quote from the Declaration of Independence, “We hold these truths to be self-evident:  that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”  Entry deadline is January 16, 2018. We encourage you to think outside of the box. Try to do something that will set you apart from the competition. Tell us how you express the values of freedom or how you have seen the values of freedom expressed by others. BE CREATIVE!
