ROSEVILLE, Mich. - U.S. Rep. Sander Levin is inviting high school students in his southeast Michigan district to enter an inauguration-themed contest.
Students in the 9th Congressional District are being asked to submit via video their own 2- to 3-minute speech to the nation.
The Student Inaugural Address Competition comes as President Barack Obama prepares to give his second inaugural address on Jan. 21.
Submissions must be received by Jan. 25 and will be judged by a panel of local residents. Students are asked to upload their videos to Levin's website.
The winner will be invited to lunch with Levin, and all student participants will receive a Certificate of Special Congressional Recognition.
