INDIANA – Indiana Secretary of State Holli Sullivan today announced the winners of the Student “I Voted” Sticker Design Competition.

“Introducing young Hoosiers to voting is crucial to the success of our state,” Secretary Sullivan said. “I am proud to see so many of our youngest citizens engaging in our civic processes even before they’re old enough to cast a ballot.”
Nearly 1,000 Indiana students submitted designs. The Indiana Arts Commission reviewed the submissions. Entries were judged on the design’s focus on attention to voting, the design’s showcase of Indiana, and the design’s overall creativity.
