LI Graphic Arts Students Garner Awards At LSC High School Design Competition


Winners in LSC’s High School Design Competition are, from left, Christian Hubbs, Nahomi Ojeda Ortiz and Devin Engelmann.

Lyndon Institute's graphic design program was well represented at the 11th annual High School Design Competition, held March 20 at Lyndon State College, garnering first- and second-place finishes. Hosted by LSC's Visual Arts Department, students had an incredible opportunity to work with college students from around the state, meet new people, design, enjoy a college atmosphere, learn and have fun.

Lyndon Institute junior, Christian Hubbs worked with students from the Cold Hollow Career Center & Barre Technical Center and earned first-place honors. LI junior, Nahomi Ojeda Ortiz took home the Silver working with students from Stafford Technical Center and Barre Technical Center. LI senior Devin Engelmann also had a very strong design and worked with students from Stafford Technical Center and Barre Technical Center.

All three students remarked how well prepared they felt in comparison to their peers in the competition (a total of five schools participated), and how much fun they had and the knowledge they gained. The event included an overview presentation of LSC and its offerings, brainstorming with their team, designing, lunch, critiquing of their work by LSC students, judging and awards. The students are members of Bridget Atkins' Graphic Arts class at Lyndon Institute.

This year's poster design winner will be showcased as next year's 12th annual High School Design Competition event poster.
