COLUMBUS, Ohio (WDTN) – Ohio Secretary of State Frank LaRose announced Monday that students in grades 6-12 are invited to submit their design for a new “I Voted” sticker for the state of Ohio.
The top designs will be chosen by the Secretary of State’s office and the final winner will be picked through a vote open to all Ohioans.
The contest began on March 25 and will end on April 28. The design has to be circular-shaped and submitted through this website.
“Ohioans wear this sticker proudly — whether they’ve voted by mail, during one of Ohio’s 28 days of early voting, or in person on Election Day,” said LaRose. “We want students to have fun, be creative, and when the time comes to select a winner – we want them to vote!”
LaRose hopes the competition will encourage young people to learn more about the democratic process and the power and impact of voting.
