Welcome to the Councilmember For A Day 2022 Video Showcase!

I am extremely excited to announce our 2022 Councilmember for a Day Challenge Winner and to showcase all of the students who participated in our Councilmember for a Day – Virtual Online Innovative & Civically Engaged Storytelling (V.O.I.C.E.S.).   In partnership with MCPS and Apple, students participated in a free after-school program on inclusive storytelling through digital journalism.  The program culminates with students creating a short video on a public policy issue important to them.  The winner will be announced during the showcase and will join me as an honorary “Councilmember for A Day" on November 15th.
