ONE UTAH: A "Revolutionary" CONTEST

Inspired by the life of Alexander Hamilton, we're inviting you to write like "you're running out of time."

High school students are invited to share "revolutionary" ideas about what can help Utah today. Submit at least 100 words and up to 400 words that describe a solution based on one of two prompts provided.

You may read Gov. Spencer J. Cox's One Utah Road Map for inspiration.

Your thoughtful entry may be selected for the chance to score 1 of 70 tickets to see "Hamilton" in Salt Lake City on Saturday, Jan. 22!

Entry period: Nov. 1 through Dec. 12 at 11:59 p.m.
Review Period: Dec. 13-22
Winners will be contacted by Dec. 30

Prompt 1


What’s an important issue in your community? Outline the issue briefly — in a paragraph or two for Gov. Cox or Lt. Gov. Deidre Henderson — and then offer a “revolutionary” solution that might help your community work better.

Prompt 2


What “revolutionary” idea would help your school or town be more inclusive? Outline the issue, and then explain to Gov. Cox or Lt. Gov. Deidre Henderson how your generation can lead in bridging this gap.

Guidelines

• Entries must be from students enrolled in a Utah high school.

• To be eligible, you must not have seen a live "Hamilton" show in the past (you're eligible if you've viewed the Disney screening of the show).

• Students under 18 must have permission from a parent or guardian to participate.

• To enter, please choose one of the two questions below and address your letter to Gov. Cox or Lt. Gov. Henderson.

• You will submit your letter via Google Forms.

• Winning letters will be selected based on insight and originality.


Procedures

• If you attend school outside of the state's urban areas (more than 50 miles from Salt Lake City), your letter will receive special consideration.

• If your letter is selected as a winner, and if you live outside of the Wasatch Front (more than 50 miles from Salt Lake City), you will receive mileage and hotel reimbursement for the trip to the theater.

• Your letter should be your original work and thoughts. (Of course you are invited to brainstorm with teachers, caregivers and friends as you formulate your ideas, but the final work should be your own.)

• Winning letters will be selected based on insight and originality.

• You may submit one letter.
