ANN ARBOR, Michigan, Jan. 31, 2020 — Calling all creative types, the City of Ann Arbor is looking for new designs for its “I voted” stickers. The city clerk’s office has launched a new contest, searching for new, unique designs to help get out the vote in the November 2020 election. Not only will the winning design(s) be featured on stickers distributed at city polling places, the winning artist(s) will receive a monetary prize.
The contest is open to all city of Ann Arbor residents and kindergarten-12th-grade students in the city of Ann Arbor. Winner(s) will be chosen in three categories: Citywide (any age, but must still be an Ann Arbor resident) | Grades 7-12 | Grades K-6. The public will be invited to vote on the final design entries.
“I voted” stickers are proudly worn by voters to both declare they exercised their voting rights and to encourage others to do the same. The works of art, combined with the City of Ann Arbor’s other efforts such as selfie stations outside of polling places, are aimed at helping to get out the vote and encouraging new voters to share their civic pride.
Interested artists can go online for the complete contest schedule, participation criteria and details: www.a2gov.org/departments/city-clerk/Elections/Pages/Sticker-Design-Contest.aspx. Here, you will also find a digital version of the entry form. Those with further questions can call 734.794.6140.
All contest entries must be received by the Ann Arbor City Clerk’s office no later than 5 p.m. Tuesday, March 31, 2020.
