The contest features the work of public, private and homeschool students and commemorates the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment, which granted all U.S. citizens the right to vote regardless of sex.
The final eight designs are from students at Hume-Fogg Academic Magnet High School, Martin Luther King, Jr. Academic Magnet School, Rose Park Magnet Middle School and Harpeth Hall School, according to the release. Overall, Metro Arts received 75 entries from students in grades seven through 12.
“We appreciate all the students who participated in the ‘I Voted’ sticker contest,” said Jeff Roberts, administrator of elections for Davidson County. “They are to be commended for getting involved in our upcoming elections and for using their talents to commemorate the centennial of women’s suffrage. We encourage Nashvillians to vote for their favorite design and look forward to distributing the commemorative sticker in August and November.”
The winning design, which will be announced during the first week in June, will be printed on stickers and distributed at every voting precinct for elections in August and November, the release said. Voting will take place through May 31.
