Gettysburg College's Matt Granito '22 named regional winner of Draw The Lines PA for second time
2019 Jul 2
Gettysburg College's Matt Granito '22 was recently named a regional winner at the Draw the Lines competition--a nonpartisan state-wide contest for people of all ages to draw their own election map of Pennsylvania, end gerrymandering, and improve democracy. This is the second time Granito has been honored at the legislative mapping contest.
Granito earned second prize in the Higher Education division in Central Pennsylvania and his map will be entered into the statewide round for a chance to win a prize up to $5,000.
"As with my previous map last fall, my goals are still compactness and contiguity. With that, I was able to ensure that all 17 districts were connected, and not just by a road or small landmark," said Granito, who plans to major in organization and management studies and minor in computer science. "Districts are clearly unfair if a district is not whole or broken up into pieces. This is the reason that both compactness and contiguity are important factors that lead to a fair map."
