NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Nashville unveiled its new "I voted" sticker in honor of the 100th anniversary of the Women's Suffrage movement.

The Metro Nashville Arts Commission partnered with the Davidson County Election Commission to host a contest for a student to design a special edition voter sticker.

This year is the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th amendment, which gave women the right to vote.

There were 75 designs from Davidson County 7-12th grade students, and a total of 2,500 votes.

The winner is Milka Negasi, a rising senior from Hume Fogg Academic Magnet High School.
