The winning sticker design will be handed out to voters in participating counties during the 2024 general election.

“Each year, my Office encourages civic participation among middle and high school students through an essay and slogan contest,” said Adams. “This sticker contest allows us to get our youngest Kentuckians involved as well.”

Interested students can send their design to sos.secretary@ky.gov by May 17th at 5 p.m. EDT. Please include the student’s name, school, address, and phone number in the submission, along with “I Voted Sticker Contest” in the email subject line. To be considered, pictures must be original work and include the words “I Voted.” Please upload in JPEG or PNG format. The finalists will be chosen by the Secretary of State’s Office to go on a ballot which will be voted on during the 2024 Kentucky State Fair. The top vote getter’s design will be printed on stickers and sent to interested county clerks to provide to voters in November.

PUBLIC NOTICE – MEMORIAL – APRIL 3, 2024 AT 4PM EDT

Written by meadecounty. Posted in Community, Special Events, Updates

Please join us today as we remember the lives lost and those changed forever by the tornado that hit Brandenburg 50 years ago. The ceremony will be streamed live on WVIH.com and broadcast on WMMG for those who are not able to attend in person.

Communities in Meade and Breckinridge County will pause to remember and honor those lost fifty years ago today on April 3, 1974.

The storms hit with little or no advance warning in the mid afternoon hours. One storm developed in western Kentucky and dropped the 47th of 148 tornadoes of the outbreak near McQuady and continued on the ground some thirty miles to where as a F5 storm it leveled the main business and residential areas of Brandenburg just after 4 pm.

The same storm produced another long track tornado in Louisville that continued through Oldham and Trimble Counties to near Madison, Indiana. Thirty one people were killed in a matter of moments in Brandenburg that afternoon. A remembrance ceremony of the anniversary will be held at 4 pm in Brandenburg at the First Baptist Church at 149 Lawrence Street, a site that was destroyed in the middle of the path of the storm.

The ceremony will be streamed live on WVIH.com and broadcast on WMMG for those who are not able to attend in person. For more coverage and personal survival stories visit our special remembrance section of our website for audio and video related to the 1974 Super Outbreak by clicking here.
