Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes



Students across the Commonwealth are participating in Kentucky’s 25th annual Essay and Slogan Contest, and Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes is inviting the public to vote for their favorite slogan.

“More than one thousand students submitted entries for the Slogan Contest,” said Grimes. “I’m always thrilled to see young Kentuckians engaged and interested in our democratic election process. I congratulate all of the contestants for creatively highlighting the importance of voting.”

Kentucky 6th-8th graders were eligible to enter the slogan contest. Entries are judged on how well they attract attention to and express the importance of participating in elections, and the Secretary of State’s office has narrowed the field of slogan entries to 24 finalists.

You can vote for your favorite slogan at The poll will remain open through 5 p.m., EST, on February 28, 2014. The first, second, and third place winners in the Slogan Contest will receive cash awards worth $1000, $600, and $400, respectively.
