The Cape Girardeau County Clerk’s Office has announced the winner of their “I Voted” sticker design contest. From Sept. 1 through Oct. 31, all high school students in Cape Girardeau County were eligible to submit artwork for a new “I Voted” sticker for 2018/2019 elections in the county.

 

A panel of judges picked four finalists, who were then voted on by the public with an online survey. Lydia Riehn of Jackson High School came up with the winning design, and Emily Landewe and Kourtney Ruggeri of Delta High School were the runners up.

The Cape Girardeau County clerk’s office is making an effort to boost the interest of high school students in the voting process. Students in 9th through 12th grade have until 5 p.m. on Oct. 31 to submit design ideas in a contest for the new Cape Girardeau County “I Voted” sticker.

Supervisor of elections, Allen Seabaugh, says they were contacted during last fall’s presidential election by a Jackson R-2 school district teacher who got her students interested by putting a creative and educational twist on the “I Voted” sticker.
