Two LTA students placed 1st & 2nd in the 2016 Charleston Youth Marathon Design Contest.
This competition was open to all CCSD students and, according to event organizers and the selection committee chair, hundreds of designs were received from all across the district.
Designs submissions were required to include elements that represent Charleston, Youth, and/or Fitness and Running. Color was also an important consideration in the selection of design winners. Both high school winners were from Ms. Liz Tonelli’s Digital Art & Design classes at Lowcoutnry Tech Academy and both also represented Burke High School as their home school.
Tyeshia Williams’ design placed 1st; she received a $100 prize and her design will be reproduced on the official Youth Marathon T-Shirt.
The 2nd place winner of a $50 prize was Tamara Snider. Her design will be used for the medal that marathon participants receive.
Congratulations to both students on their hard work and success!
