Computer Graphics student wins national design competition

Northwest Kansas Technical College is pleased to announce that Computer Graphics Technology student Jacquelynn V. Branch is the winner of the 2015 Print and Graphics Scholarship Foundation poster design competition. The student submissions to the foundation are always of a professional caliber, making it a challenge to participants.

Branch who is originally from Hobart, Okla. will be a second year Computer Graphics student in the fall. She participated in Art Club this past year at Northwest Tech, and hopes to extend her time to include Gaming Club during her sophomore year.

Her future goals include earning her bachelor degree (being the first woman in her family to do so), and applying her degree in the design field doing photography, creating car decals, and creating various art pieces. Jacquelynn would like to eventually gain an internship and later work in Oklahoma City.

CGT contest winnerFirst-year Computer Graphics instructor Ian Tompkins commented, “My students have been submitting to this for a few years, and winning it puts us up with some very large institutions.”

The Print and Graphics Scholarship Foundation will recognize Jacquelynn with a $500.00 check, a certificate of recognition, and an official PGSF national news release.
