Student promoted election engagement

Cincinnati State student Christy Hicks hosted a “Voter’s Treat” event on October 28, 2020, to encourage students to learn about the importance of voting.

Christy is a Nursing student and is the College’s representative for the Campus Election Engagement Project (CEEP).

As a CEEP Fellow, Christy has been working since August 2020 to provide information about voting to students via email, games, and events.

CEEP is a national, nonpartisan project that helps faculty, staff, and student leaders at America’s colleges and universities engage students in federal, state, and local elections.

For the pre-Halloween “Voter’s Treat” event, Christy transformed into Willy Wonka. She distributed candy bars to drive-through visitors, including some “Golden Ticket” candy bars that could be exchanged for a gift card.
