Carrie Chapman Catt Award

2020-2021 Carrie Chapman Catt Award Results


Last school year, 22 Iowa high schools earned the Carrie Chapman Catt Award. 78 Iowa high schools signed up across 55 counties, and a total of 2,504 students registered to vote through the initiative. A picture of the Carrie Chapman Catt Award trophy is available for your use at this link.

“Despite the challenges created by the COVID pandemic, we increased the number of schools that hit the 90 percent threshold this year. It took a lot of work and dedication by principals, teachers, and most importantly, the students. I’m proud of all of the schools that stepped up this year and helped students register to vote,” Secretary Pate said.
