Westview HS junior, Patrick Breslin wins 503-ATHLETE Logo Design Competition!
Approximately 90 high school arts, graphics, and marketing students from the Beaverton School District participated in logo design competition for Orthopedic + Fracture (O+F) Specialists’ acute orthopedic injury hotline: 503-ATHLETE, a phone line implemented to provide immediate access to an orthopedic specialist when a fracture or sports injury occurs. We received over 130 design submissions! The project began in January and ran the course of the semester where approximately 30 of the participating students had the opportunity to receive and implement feedback from O+F as they would in the real-world. The first place winner, Patrick Breslin of Westview HS has won a $2000 scholarship. An additional $2000 will be presented to Westview’s Art Department along with a $1000 scholarship to the runner’s up, Salomee Souag of Sunset HS. The winning design will be featured on the website as well as other promotional initiatives related to 503-ATHLETE.
This competition provided a great opportunity for students to get real-world exposure to a potential career path in working with the needs of a client, while providing the schools’ program with a relevant project to educate students. Tamara Ottum from Aloha High School’s Art Department found this to be a unique experience for her students: “This is amazing. I LOVE that they are getting the real-world experience and feedback from someone other than me. It was a fabulous experience for our students. Thank you so much to your team and everyone involved in making this possible.”
