Awards Students competed for Sharpener Trophies, a Wacom Intuos Tablet and Gift Certificate from Golden Paints

The PrattMWP Design Group hosted the 2015 Sharpener Awards DESIGN-A-THON, to help launch a new non profit organization. The competitors were tasked to design a visual identity for the Green Zone Project which aims to provide  services to United States veterans from all branches of the armed services.

The designs were completed in a twelve hour period including break out sessions to critique progress. Area professionals provided valuable feedback and mentorship during the process.

Holland Farms provided a much needed and hilarious, deliciously filled Jelly Bun break. I’d say we’re all tempted to make our own Jelly Buns commercial….yum.

We hope to post the results from the judging by next week. Stay tuned.

The results are posted here: [Sharpener Award RESULTS.] And please see our Facebook photo album of the event by photographer Emily Jureller.

Claude Schuyler provides advice to students during the event.
