Winners Chosen for the Wilson County I Voted Sticker
Lebanon, TN – The winners in Wilson County’s inaugural “I Voted” and “Future Voter” sticker contest were announced Monday evening at the Wilson County Board of Education meeting. The submission of Adeyiola Adejare, a 10th grade student at Mt Juliet High School, was chosen for the “I Voted” category and the creation of Blake Gibson, a 3rd grader at Stoner Creek, was picked for the “Future Voter” sticker. The winning designs will be printed and used for the 2024 Election cycle.
“We are always looking for creative ways to celebrate voting and boost the civic engagement in Wilson County. This contest was a fun way to showcase the talent of our students and to raise awareness of the 2024 elections to our future voters,” said Tammy Smith Wilson County Administrator of Elections.
This contest was a partnership between the Election Commission and Josh Johnston and Amy Gullion of the Wilson County School System. Working with art departments in Wilson County Schools there were 85 designs submitted in the “I Voted” high school contest and 25 entries in the “Future Voter” category. The entries were presented to and winners were voted on by the seven members of the Wilson County School Board.
Tammy Smith, Administrator of Elections commented, “We are excited to present these student designed “I Voted” stickers to voters in the upcoming election season and to encourage students, our future voters, to share their civic pride through their creative talents.”
The Wilson County Election Commission is currently preparing for three elections in 2024 beginning with the Republican and Democratic Presidential Preference Primary on March 5th, 2024. The popular “I Voted” stickers are a badge of honor worn by voters to both show they have exercised their right to vote and to encourage others to participate.
