Stoughton High Senior Katherine Scabia Wins Kids Voting Poster Contest

Scabia's winning poster will be sued to help promote Kids Voting Stoughton, a program which allows Stoughton youth to experience the voting process on Election Day. Kids Voting Stoughton is looking for volunteers to help on Election Day.

The following is a release from Kids Voting Stoughton:

Kids Voting Stoughton, a K-12 curriculum culminating with kids voting at all precincts on federal and state election days, sponsored a poster contest (for  High School students only to encourage participation in the Kids Voting program.

Stoughton High seniors Adam Lurie, John Stewart-Racicot and Kelsey Laferriere, students who are part of the Kids Voting Stoughton Steering Committee this year, came up with the idea for the contest and promoted it throughout the high school.  The winner was chosen by the committee at their last meeting on October 4. 

Katherine Scabia, a senior, was the winner of the poster contest this year.  The Stoughton Chamber of Commerce was kind enough to offer a small cash prize for this contest and Katherine was awarded the check by John Gallivan, Director of Social Studies at the High School.  

The winning poster is being printed in small and large formats and will be disseminated throughout town in the next weeks to encourage students and parents to turn out and vote on November 6. Kids Voting Stoughton takes place from 2-8 p.m. on Election Day.

Kids Voting has a large Steering Committee made up of many townsfolk and requires about 150 volunteers to help on election day.  If you'd like to volunteer for a two-hour shift, please call Pat Basler, 781-344-2711 or come to the Volunteer Training being held Thursday, October 25 at 6 p.m. at the Stoughton Council on Aging/Youth Commission Building at 110 Rockland St.
