The Adams County Elections Department is hosting a second “I Voted” sticker design contest for Adams County students. The first design contest drew nearly 50 entries from students ranging from kindergarten to college level, and four stickers were chosen as winners and featured in the 2019 and 2020 elections.
In addition, a new Spanish category has been introduced this year. The winning design of this category will be available at in-person voting locations throughout the 2021 and 2022 elections.
“For the contest in 2019, my office was blown away by the many incredible designs we received,” says Josh Zygielbaum, Adams County Clerk & Recorder. “We knew right away we’d continue running the contest and engaging our community’s youth in the electoral process. It’s a great opportunity for students to share their creativity and to learn something about elections in the process.”
Students can submit hand-drawn or digital artwork now through Friday, May 7. Prizes will be awarded to the grand prize winner and runners-up. For more information on rules, prizes, and how to enter, visit AdamsVotes.com/contest.
Adams County residents will have the opportunity to vote on the top sticker designs to choose the final winners. Information about the voting process will be available on the Adams County Clerk & Recorder Facebook and Twitter pages, as well as the Adams County Government social channels.
In addition to the prizes, the winning designs will be featured in 2021 Coordinated (third place), 2022 Primary (second place), and 2022 General (grand prize) elections.
