“I Voted” Sticker Design Contest

I Voted Sticker Design Contest

Calling all Adams County students kindergarten through college! This contest is open to students who either live in or attend school in Adams County. It’s also open to students whose parent(s) work for Adams County.

The Adams County Elections Department would like to have new custom “I Voted” stickers for the upcoming 2021 and 2022 elections, and we need your help!

If you like to draw or are an aspiring graphic designer, this contest is for you. We’re accepting both hand-drawn and digital submissions.

We’ve introduced a new Spanish category this year. The winning design must follow all the same rules, with the exception of all words on the sticker must be in Spanish. The winning design of this category will be available at in-person voting locations throughout the 2021 and 2022 elections.

Want to share with students you know? See our printable posters, available in English and Spanish.
