"I Voted" Sticker Design Contest

"I Voted" Sticker Design Contest



Calling All Youth Artists!

The Gilpin County Clerk & Recorder’s Office is excited to launch an “I Voted” Sticker Design Contest for 2024! Voting stickers are a badge of honor proudly worn by voters to declare they've exercised their right to vote and remind others to make their voice heard, too. Together, we'll highlight local talent and celebrate Gilpin County’s civic pride. Your art could be printed and shared with voters across the county!

How It Works

Youth 18 years of age and younger are invited to submit their sticker designs from now through May 15, 2024. A panel of judges will review and select finalists in the ages 13-18 and under 13 categories, and then a community vote determines the winners. During the review and selection process, all entries will remain anonymous. The winners of the two categories will each have their design printed on new “I Voted” stickers and used in promotional materials for the November 2024 election. 

Designs that do not get selected for the stickers may be used in other promotional materials. 

Voters will be able to pick up the “I Voted” stickers at the polling center throughout the November general election.

Artists must:

  • Use one of the templates below OR include “Gilpin County, CO” at a readable size in another way
  • Be a resident of Gilpin County or enrolled at a school in Gilpin County
  • Be less than 19 years old
  • Meet the design requirements
  • Agree to the terms and conditions

Design Requirements

Artists must use their skills to create an original design that celebrates voting and Gilpin County, Colorado. All submissions:

  • MUST use one of the provided circular templates with the Gilpin County logo or name or include “Gilpin County, CO” in the design at a readable size
  • MUST include the words "I Voted" 
  • MUST be original artwork and not include stock photos, borrowed images, product logos, copyrighted characters, brand names, etc.
  • MUST NOT reference any candidates, political parties, or advocate for or against any issue
  • MUST NOT include any obscene, violent, or defamatory words or imagery
  • MUST NOT include any dates or years

Submissions may be hand-drawn using pencils, pens, crayons, markers, paint, or other mixed media tools, or created using graphic design software, but artists may not use an AI art generator to create their designs. Digital files must be submitted as high-quality PDF, PNG, EPS, or select other design file types.

Please retain your original submissions so they can be made available to the Clerk's office upon request.
