Virginia Governor’s High School Voter Registration Challenge

students helpingThe governor is challenging all Virginia schools to register eligible members of their senior class.  Schools that register at least 65% of their eligible seniors will be recognized. The Governor’s Challenge was established in 2016, as part of the High School Voter Registration Week.

The award is intended to recognize and commemorate the efforts of the next generation of leaders to educate, engage and inform their fellow students about how to get involved in the voting process. Schools that register 65% of their eligible senior class will earn the award. Virginia high schools can sign-up to participate in the Challenge by emailing
