Last updated: May 11, 2022

The City of Burnaby announced the winners of its mail ballot box design contest. Winners include Cindy (Armstrong Elementary School), Jackson (Aubrey Elementary School), Kaito (Brentwood Elementary School), Ava (Montecito Elementary School), Ryan (Burnaby South Secondary) and Katrina (Brantford Elementary School).

In partnership with School District 41, the City of Burnaby invited local students to participate in an art competition to design a wrap for mail ballot boxes for the 2022 local government election. The theme was “It’s 2022 – Why Vote?”

The City received 180 submissions from elementary schools throughout Burnaby and chose the winners based on creativity, theme interpretation and how closely they followed the contest guidelines. We would like to thank the volunteer judges, Michel Roy and Tony Bosello of the Burnaby Art Gallery Advisory Committee, Jim Keayes, President, Burnaby Artists Guild, Jasmine Wu, Executive Director, Burnaby Arts Council, Gina Niccoli-Moen, Superintendent of Schools for District 41, Leon Gous, Chief Administrative Officer, City of Burnaby and Denis Nokony, Director of Cultural Services for their time and consideration.
