COLORADO — Colorado Secretary of State Jena Griswold announced Monday the details of the "I Voted" digital sticker design competition. High school students will compete to come up with the new design.

“Allowing the next generation of voters to creatively participate in our elections is such a fun way to encourage engagement in our democracy. Colorado voters have always worn their ‘I Voted’ stickers with pride, and now they’ll be able to do that digitally after casting their mail ballot,” Griswold said. I can’t wait to see the submissions we get from high schoolers around the state!”

The contest beginning Monday, August, 8th will continue through Friday, September, 2nd.

Once the new design is selected the new digital sticker will be sent to voters via BallotTrax upon completing their ballot.

The design will also appear on the Secretary of State's website, media channels, press releases, and media coverage in its campaign to encourage people to vote across the state.

The winner will be presented an award by Secretary Griswold during an assembly at the artist's school.
