"I VOTED"
STUDENT STICKER CONTEST

Design Nashville's next "I Voted" sticker, celebrating the 100th anniversary of women's right to vote!

Attention, Davidson County students in 7th through 12th grades: a sticker designed by YOU could be on the shirts, lapels and Instagram photos of every voter in Nashville this year! 

In honor of this year's centennial of the Nineteenth Amendment guaranteeing women the right to vote, Metro Arts and the Davidson County Election Commission have partnered to sponsor a contest to create a special edition "I Voted" sticker.

 

Upload your non-partisan design (or mail it in on the form linked below) incorporating Nashville and voting. The finalists, chosen by a citizen selection panel, will be posted online for public voting, and the winning design will be printed and distributed at all Davidson County precincts during the fall 2020 elections!
