Governor Whitmer is challenging Michigan’s K-12 students to come up with a creative design for the 2023 State of the State program cover following the theme “What makes Michigan strong?”

During her State of the State address, Governor Whitmer will share her vision for Michigan and plan to address key issues to put Michigan first, including jobs, education, infrastructure, and Michigan’s strong economic progress.

Students should be as creative as possible and are welcome to use crayon, marker, paint, or any other material. To submit your design, please follow the instructions on this page. Submittals will be accepted exclusively through the online system and must be received by no later than 11:59PM on Sunday, January 15.
