The Durham County Board of Elections and Kids Voting Durham are teaming up to host a Kids ‘I VOTED’ Sticker Contest. On Election Day (Tuesday, November 8), when people cast their vote, they’ll get an “I Voted” sticker. It’s a nice little souvenir, but it also reminds others to cast their votes, too. This contest is for students from kindergarten through 12th grade. The student with the winning design will see his or her design on thousands of stickers and will also receive a cash prize!


Click here for more info and to enter the contest by the Friday, August 19, 5pm deadline. Good luck!

Amaze your friends by showing their houses with just a few keystrokes. Go on the house below and then type in your street address in the search box. In a few seconds, you’ll see your house or building. If you then click on the Earth symbol at the top of the screen (near the middle), you’ll switch from Street mode to Map mode and you’ll see your house or building a map. Go back and forth from Map to Street mode and look around your neighborhood.

Thanks so much!


SameGame is really fun to play. Try to click and clear all of the balloons. Look over the board first and try to spot large blocks of color. For example, if you see a single red balloon that’s surrounded by different colors, don’t click on it! Look for balloons that are next to other balloons of the same color. The more balloons that you clear with each click, the higher your score will be—Good luck!
