What does the history of American women’s voting look like to children from all 50 U.S. states?

To celebrate the centennial of the ratification of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution — which gave many women the right to vote — the White House created an art contest for anyone under the age of 18 to submit a visual representation of individuals, symbols or events related to the women’s suffrage movement.

Starting in the 19th century, the women’s suffrage movement fought for the right to vote in both local and national elections. The first victory was the ratification of the 19th Amendment on August 26, 1920, which granted white women the right to vote, partially realizing our founding ideals 100 years ago, and fully realizing them in 1965 with all women, regardless of race, being able to vote.
