To show team spirit for the American Cancer Society, Remington College – Fort Worth’s Digital Graphic Art (DGA) students designed T-shirts in honor of the staff and faculty’s participation in the Society’s annual Relay For Life event. Fourteen entries were submitted in this creative and unique design contest, with the following students selected as the winners:
- Benjamin Jenkins (First Place)
- Janet Hoover (Second Place)
- Victor Rea (Third Place – tie)
- Jeremy Guidry (Third Place – tie)
The staff and faculty voted on which design best represented the spirit of the American Cancer Society Relay For Life event, and the T-shirt ballots allowed employees to give valuable feedback to our students. This contest also enabled our students to explore their creativity and practice marketing and representation at the same time.
First-place winner Benjamin Jenkins said, “I enjoy the whole creative process; taking a blank canvas and putting something together that’s attractive is the enjoyment I get out of designing.”
Susan Thompson taught Benjamin in her Portfolio class. “Benjamin is extremely talented and hard-working. I believe his outgoing personality, sense of humor, and intelligence will take him to great heights, and I look forward to seeing what he creates,” said Ms. Thompson.
Benjamin’s winning design was worn by the Fort Worth Campus participants in the Relay, which was held at the Texas Rangers’ ballpark in Arlington, Texas, on Friday, April 29, 2011.
Remington College – Fort Worth Campus is proud of all its talented participants in the T-Shirt Design Contest.
