Debating for Democracy (D4D)™ Winners Produce Video on Effective Lobbying with Award Money

Earlham College juniors David Schutt and Clara Stuligross recently completed a video on how to communicate effectively with elected officials, featuring Representative Paul D. Tonko (D-NY) and congressional staffers. Schutt and Stuligross emphasize that elected officials pay attention to constituents who reach out to them, promoting the underlying philosophy of the D4D Program.

At the 2012 Project Pericles D4D National Conference, Schutt and Stuligross took first place in the Legislative Hearing for their defense of their "Letter in Support of the Budget Control Act"- written to U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY). After winning the D4D Legislative Hearing, the pair spent the summer in Washington, D.C. as interns - Schutt in Congress and Stuligross at the Environmental Protection Agency. While in D.C., they used part of their $3,000 award from Project Pericles to produce the video.
