A $500 scholarship will be awarded to one winning entry submitted by a high school senior and a $500 donation will be awarded to the art program at the school with the “Best of Show” entry. Four additional runner-up entries will be featured in election materials distributed by the elections office educating voters on the voting process. The $500 awards are provided by Champions For Learning through the Chuck Mohlke Endowment Fund of the Community Foundation of Collier County. Mr. Mohlke left a legacy of respect, charity, kindness, and a commitment to civic engagement and passion for learning.
“Chuck Mohlke was such a pillar in this community when it came to voting. He would have been proud to support Art for Democracy!” – Jennifer J. Edwards, Supervisor of Elections.
