Here is a note from our Winner- 

Hello! My name is Lindsey Larkin. I am a life-long homeschooler and graduate of the Classical Conversations Challenge program (May 2021). I have a great love of history and the American Constitution and I hope to continue sharing the importance of the American founding with others.

I enjoy public speaking and have emceed at both state and national events. In 2019, I was selected to serve as a social media representative at the National 4-H Legacy Awards, where I interviewed nationally acclaimed 4-H alumnae. I have won 4-H state public speaking contests in extemporaneous speech, prepared speech, and radio speaking.

I have served as Maryland 4-H State Council President since 2020 and routinely lead statewide meetings, events, and community outreach activities involving youth, teens, and adults;
as well as, develop content for youth state leadership programs.

After applying, I was selected to participate in 4-H leadership trips across the nation. Most notably, I presented to the U.S. Department of Energy in D.C. at National 4-H Conference and had the distinguished honor to be selected and to serve on the Youth Leadership Design Team 2019 at National 4-H Congress. In 2021, I was fortunate enough to win the Voice of Democracy Contest at districts and placed 3rd in the state contest. Additionally, I currently intern at my local U.S. Congressional District Office.

As a Marylander, I love Old Bay, seafood, and entering craft projects in the state fair. In my opinion, out of all of the state flags, ours is #1!

I am so grateful to Constituting America for their efforts in promoting the U.S. Constitution and our American principles of freedom. Winning this contest has been a dream of mine and I am so excited to join Constituting America in their mission!
