B-B artists take honors in STOP-DWI Poster Contest

Her sister, eighth-grader Grace Shepard, took first place in the category for Grades 6-8, and classmate Kendall Phillips won third-place honors in that same group. All three designers will be recognized at the STOP-DWI Awards Luncheon on Nov. 28, 2017 at Terry Hills Restaurant and Banquet Facility in Batavia.

The contest is sponsored by the county’s STOP-DWI Advisory Board. This year’s theme was “You can hand over your keys or your life. Make the right choice.” Zoey Shepard’s Grand Prize-winning poster design will be applied to t-shirts and a prominent county billboard to help raise awareness for the dangers of drinking and driving.

When the competition was announced in September, Grace Shepard, a 2016 STOP-DWI contest winner, enthusiastically promoted it to the other girls. All three designed their entries on their own time, outside of class. Art teacher Sandy Auer worked with them, guiding their discussions about what makes a great design.

“They were very serious about creating good compositions with compelling imagery and readability,” Auer said. “All three have a passion for art that is awesome to see. I really enjoy teaching them.”
