“The Voting History Bowl is important, it educates our scholars on the history of the Voting Rights Movement and why it is important to register and vote when they are 18 years of age as well as demonstrates the scholar’s understanding of this history and how lessons learned can be applied in their school and community,” said Jubilee youth events coordinator Yomi Goodall.
