Iowa’s Governor and Lieutenant Governor are inviting second, third and fourth graders to draw a picture about their dreams for the future. “Iowa: Strong Families, Strong Futures” is the theme of the Governor and Lieutenant Governor’s Inaugural and the winning picture will be made into an inaugural poster. Lieutenant Governor Sally Pederson discussed the contest this morning during a visit to a school in Des Moines. Every school district is invited to select one picture, forward it to the Governor’s office and then the winner will be chosen. All the top pictures will be put on display at the Iowa Statehouse on January 17th, the day of the Inaugural. Pederson says children dream of bright and optimistic futures, and that’s what she expects in the pictures. The student who draws the winning picture will get special recognition.Tickets are required for the swearing in ceremony which’ll be held in Drake University’s Knapp Center. Admission is free, but there are only four-thousand spaces available. Ticket to the Inaugural Ball cost $25. There will also be open houses at the Statehouse and the Governor’s mansion, and a celebration of Iowa authors will be staged at the State Library in Des Moines as part of the Inaugural festivities.
