The people have spoken! Two career and technical education (CTE) students at Nevada’s Carson High School won first place in a local competition to design “I Voted” stickers.
As the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic closed schools, many graphic design students found themselves at home without access to standard software. Some students didn’t have computers. Patricia Ababio, graphic design instructor at Carson High School, was not deterred.
“We brainstormed a solution,” said Ababio. “Students created thumbnails of their designs using pencil and paper. They created what they considered sticker designs, that voters would be both proud to wear and that would reflect the character of the American voter. It was a great way for us to participate in a terrific contest, even while staying home, for Nevada.”
The competition, open to Carson City students in grades nine through 12, received more than 200 entries. A selection panel of local and state officials determined two first-place winners. An additional eight entries were identified for honorable mention.
