This school year just finished with great news: Fernanda Diaz-Pizarro, a Grade 10 student, developed a poster promoting vaccination, which is now going to be used to promote this important activity around the world!
This is a great step for anyone interested in the arts and media. The award - which includes a $1,000 USD prize - is granted by Amplifier, a nonprofit design lab based in the U.S. that promotes and increases focus on artists' work worldwide. Fernanda's poster was selected among 99 others that will now be used across the globe to boost people's participation in the COVID-19 vaccination programs.
Fernanda's work is part of Graphic Design I class, imparted by Ms. Melannie Hurtado, US Arts and Technology Teacher. "This project was part of my Graphic Design I class curriculum this year where we spent three weeks talking about posters and developing our ideas in Adobe Illustrator. I think it is important for them to design for the real world and I am delighted that one of our own won such an important prize," mentioned Ms. Hurtado.
Congratulations to Fernanda on this great achievement!
