March is Women’s History Month. And the Cantabile Women’s Chorus is marking the occasion, with a concert called “Finding Our Voice” in Lewes on March 24th.



Last fall, the University of Delaware's Center for Political Communication held its second annual audio essay contest, with the theme "Voices Matter."  It was held in conjunction with The Center for Political Communication’s National Agenda series “Midterm Matters,” which included the 2018 Delaware Debates Delaware Public Media helped produce last October.

Dozens of students participated by producing a wide range personal and emotional audio essays and Delaware Public Media was proud to help judge the entries.

Earlier this week, 10 finalists were honored at UD,  and the first second and third place award winners were announced.  And this week in our Enlighten Me segment, we present the 3 award winning essays.
