Committee Announces Contests Before Pennsylvania Governor-Elect Shapiro's Inauguration


On Wednesday, the Shapiro-Davis Inaugural Committee announced the Inaugural Contest Series – a series of four interactive contests that will give students and families from across the Commonwealth an opportunity to be a part of the Inauguration of Pennsylvania’s next Governor and Lieutenant Governor.
 
“We are thrilled to announce our interactive Contest Series to invite Pennsylvanians to get involved in this Inauguration and highlight the best of what our Commonwealth has to offer,” said Shapiro-Davis Inaugural Committee Executive Director Amanda Warren. “Governor-Elect Shapiro is focused on bringing families, students, and entire communities to the table for this celebration, and with these contests, this Inauguration will feature stories and accomplishments from all across the Commonwealth.”

The Inaugural Contest Series includes five different interactive contests. The first, ‘Hometown Heroes’ contest, encourages Pennsylvanians to nominate a friend, neighbor, or community member who has made significant contributions to their community. Other contests include a Pennsylvania Selfies contest, an essay contest for students who participate in a vocational, technical, building trades, or computer science instruction program, and art contests for students in elementary, middle, and high school. Winners of these contests will have their work featured both during the Inauguration and at the Governor’s residence.

See below for more information about the Inaugural Contest Series:

Hometown Hero Contest: Families across the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania are invited to nominate a member of their community for a chance to attend the Inauguration of Governor-Elect Josh Shapiro and Lt. Governor-Elect Austin Davis. Nominators are tasked with explaining why they’re nominating their neighbor and what contributions their neighbor has made to their community that defines them as a Hometown Hero.

Art Contest: Students from across the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania are invited to reveal their artistic talents through photography or fine art. Students are encouraged to promote the beauty of their community in an artistic form. Entrants should create a photo or painting that reflects what they find beautiful about their community.

Essay Contest: Pennsylvania High school students (Grades 9 - 12) who participate in a vocational, technical, building trades, or computer science instruction program are invited to submit an essay that describes how their workforce development course has prepared them for a career in their desired field and how Governor-Elect Josh Shapiro’s plans to invest in our workforce will help them shape their future.

Pennsylvania Selfies: Pennsylvania residents are invited to submit a selfie sporting campaign or inaugural merchandise for a chance to win.

The contests invite Pennsylvanians from all across our Commonwealth to get involved with the historic inauguration of Governor-Elect Josh Shapiro and Lt. Governor-Elect Austin Davis.
