Throughout the fall and winter, middle and high school students across New Hampshire crafted their best Soapbox speeches about issues important to them and their communities. Students from Pittsfield, Gorham, Groveton, Henniker, Weare, and Littleton and their teachers proudly presented their hard work.
We encourage you to watch and engage with these powerful videos, and share your support in the comments! We want to honor the speakers’ truth, and make sure this experience of making their voice heard on important community issues is just the beginning of a lifetime of civic engagement and advocacy!
Thank you to those of you who joined us at the culminating statewide Mainstage event on March 9, 2021! Watch the event recording here.
Project Soapbox is a public speaking opportunity that calls on young people to develop and deliver an original speech on an issue that matters to them. Students’ speeches answer the question: “What is the biggest issue facing your community, & what should be done about it?” Now more than ever, it’s important that young people are empowered to speak and be heard, which is why Mikva students, teachers, and staff were so excited to participate in Project Soapbox virtually!
