Congratulations to Sadari Heatherly, formerly a student at Liberty Intermediate School for designing the Winning Billboard design.
…And the Votes are in
Election Day in the I-KAN Region was used to select the winner of this year’s Wise Highs Billboard contest sponsored by the I-KAN Regional Office of Education’s Life Education program. More than 2,500 seventh and 8th grade students took part in the election using actual voting equipment. The Kankakee and Iroquois County Clerks Bruce Clark and Lisa Fancher made available county voting machines so that 7th and 8th graders could cast their vote.
Students learn the entire process –starting with a registration drive, creating poll books -- even providing election judges to assure that the electoral process is carried out to the letter of the law. Just like in a real election, votes will be tallied through the County Clerk’s offices.
This year’s winning Wise Highs Billboard design was created by Sadari Heatherly formerly a student at Liberty Intermediate School, Bourbonnais Elementary School District #53. Have your eye out for the this billboard as it will be displayed throughout Iroquois and Kankakee Counties in the coming weeks.
