October 3, 2021 - The City of Traverse City recently launched a creative challenge by seeking designs for its “Future Voter” stickers. In 2020, the City Clerk’s Office launched an “I Voted” sticker design contest with over 1,300 voters participating in voting for the winning design.  

The “Future Voter” contest was open to  to K-12 students in Grand Traverse, Leelanau, Benzie, Antrim, or Kalkaska counties. Students provided nearly 40 submissions and six finalists were chosen from a panel of judges. A public vote to select the winners of the six finalists will run October 3 - 10, 2021.  The three designs with the top number of votes will win $100 each and be announced at the October 11, 2021 City Commission Meeting.

“The ‘I Voted’ sticker design contest in 2020 was a big success. Traverse City voters continue to proudly display that they exercised their voting rights. Instilling the importance of exercising your right to vote within our youth through this new, Future Voter Sticker Design Contest, will build lifelong citizens that participate in democracy and celebrate civic pride,” says Benjamin Marentette, City Clerk.
