This year the artwork on the cover of our local
voters’ pamphlet was drawn by Marie Helton, a 8th grader from
Tumwater Middle School. Marie’s art won first place in Thurston
County’s Voter Pamphlet Cover Contest. The contest was presented
to schools within Thurston County with the following slogan:
“Your Vote Is Your Voice.”
There were many outstanding entries for the contest.
Second place went to Danielle Sonderby. We had a tie for Third
place. Winners were Sam Dyer-Vatne and Earl Nash. Schools represented
were Tumwater and Bush Middle Schools. You can see their artwork
on the next page.
Keep an eye open for samples of other excellent
submissions at your local Timberland Library throughout the
