Sticker Design Contest
The Ohio STEM Learning Network (OSLN) invited students from across the state to create a design for a water bottle sticker that represented this year’s #STEMsecuresOhio OSLN Statewide Design Challenge. We are excited to unveil this year’s top designs.
This year’s competition brought over 75 entries from students across the state.
Sticker designs were judged in three different grade categories: K-5, 6-8, and 9-12. Entries were judged on how well they encompassed or represented the theme of this year’s #STEMsecuresOhio Challenge. Students were given a set of constraints on basic design, size and colors used in the sticker, but were allowed poetic license in their interpretation of the theme.
The winners of this year’s challenge will receive a plaque of their sticker commemorating their first place finish and stickers to distribute to their family and friends. In addition, the winning stickers will be produced for distribution at this year’s Ohio STEM Innovation Summit on May 12, 2023.

#STEMsecuresOhio OSLN Statewide Design Challenge
Educators know that learning is at its best when students can find a personal connection to their work. This year’s design challenge was created to help students do just that – connect to the world around them.
This year’s challenge is:
How can we secure our data, our environment, or our way of life? Identify a focus and develop a plan, product or system that provides or improves security for someone or something.
