The submission period for the 2022 VoteHillsborough Voter Registration and Art Contest has ended. 
Thank you to all who participated.

The Winners

Congratulations to our 2022 VoteHillsborough Contest finalists and thank you to all who participated in both our Art and Voter Registration Contests. It was exciting to present the awards and we cannot wait to share student artwork this summer and fall. 

2022 Registration and Art Contest Winners

The Art Contest

The first-place winning design will be reproduced as 2”x2” round stickers and given to voters who vote early or drop off their mail ballot during the two weeks leading up to Election Day for the 2022 Primary and General Elections. The art will also be featured at all 40 Caspers Company McDonald’s restaurants in Hillsborough County, on our social media channels, in displays at our offices and in other outreach efforts encouraging our community to vote.

 

The Registration Contest

During the fall and spring semesters, we conduct voter registration drives in the high schools across our county. The three schools with the most successful voter registration drives (based on percentage of senior class) received a plaque and were recognized in front of the School Board.

Art Contest Prizes

The first-place prize was $100. Another $100 prize went to the first-place winner’s classroom and the class was treated to a free lunch, all compliments of our flagship sponsor, Caspers Company McDonald’s. Several finalists won prizes and all winners were recognized at a School Board meeting. This year, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Tampa Bay Lightning joined us as sponsors, and we were thrilled to have their support for this program!

 

Art submissions were due March 11, 2022.
