Students can design artwork for state voters’ pamphlet
March 6, 2012
Issaquah students can design artwork for the Washington State Voters’ Pamphlet — a guide distributed to more than 3 million people statewide before the November election.
Secretary of State Sam Reed’s office invited students in fourth and fifth grades to enter the contest. In addition to featuring the top artwork in the voters’ guide, Reed plans to conduct a surprise visit to the winner’s school.
The theme for the contest is “If I Could Vote.” The art contest is a chance for Washington’s youngest citizens to be a part of elections and think about what they might value as voters.
Students enter the contest by submitting art with the entry form by April 16. Find the entry form at www.sos.wa.gov/_assets/elections/just4you/Entryform.pdf. Email JulieAnne Behar at firstname.lastname@example.org to ask questions or to learn more about the contest.
