Project Soapbox builds empathy in the classroom, provides a positive outlet for youth ideas, and helps students connect to the power of their voice.
Soapbox Nation is the next level opportunity for students from across the country who have participated in Project Soapbox to share videos of their speeches about an issue that matters to them on a national platform. Every year, a select group of youth speakers are chosen to travel to Washington, D.C. and deliver their speech in front of a national audience (all expenses paid!). Watch the powerful speeches of the 2023 Soapbox Nation Finalists.
Kindergarten-12th grade classrooms throughout the country are eligible to submit speeches for consideration to be highlighted on the Soapbox Nation page. Middle and high school students will be chosen for the trip to Washington, D.C.
NOTE: Students whose videos have been submitted to local Soapbox events are automatically entered into consideration for Soapbox Nation!
Soapbox Nation celebrates the power of youth voice and encourages students to become active participants in the civic conversation of their community – while fostering public speaking skills, critical thinking, and empathy for peers.
My experience made me feel powerful, that my voice mattered and that we have the power to change the world and we will.
