City Launches Design Contest For “I Voted” Stickers

By Beth Milligan | Sept. 13, 2020

The City of Traverse City is hosting a design contest to create a new “I Voted” sticker for the November election.

The contest is open to residents - including 9th-12th grade students - in Grand Traverse, Leelanau, Benzie, Antrim, and Kalkaska counties. Artists can provide more than one submission, and collaborations are welcome. The winning design will be printed as stickers and distributed (including digitally) to voters on Election Day.

Artists are invited to submit proposals for an “I Voted” sticker design between September 10 and September 28 online here. Once the application process closes, a panel of judges will review the select three finalists. The panel of judges consist of Steve Constantin (City Resident), Gary Howe (Arts Selection Panel Chair Person/City Resident), Chelsie Neimi (Arts Commissioner/City Resident), Colleen Paveglio (City Clerk’s Office/City Resident), and Anne Stanton (City Resident). A public vote to select a winner of the three finalists will run October 4-11.  The winning artist will receive $500 and be announced at the October 12 city commission meeting.

“We are thrilled to launch this endeavor in Traverse City to not only gain interest in voting by supporting the arts, but build civic pride within our community,” says City Clerk Benjamin Marentette.

The City of Traverse City will also launch a “Future Voter” sticker design contest in 2021 for K-12 students in the region.
