Want To Have A Hand In The Political Process In New York

One of the most secretive processes in state government is the redrawing of political boundary lines, which happens every 10 years. This year, New York and Pennsylvania are on deck to have the lines redrawn. But one group says it could be more fairly done by anyone-- even children. And they aim to prove it. Fordham University is holding a competition and asking any students (even some as young as 10 years old) to get on a website and redraw the boundary lines themselves. The best plans could win a 1-thousand dollar reward, and may be submitted to state lawmakers. If you want to try your hand at it, go here.
