The Soapbox Contest was a competition to impact a cause by using your voice. Held at Illinois State University, on April 16, 2013, the contest gathered students across the campus to audio record a two minute speech persuading people to support a cause they were passionate about. We posted all of the speeches on website and had you vote on five finalist. Then four judges and your votes decided the winner out of the five finalist. The winner received money that was given to an organization that supported their cause.
