Romello Turner, a 10th grader at Dollarway High School, won the the Dollarway School District Logo Design Contest.


Zakia Faucette, a 9th grader, was the top finalist and Eshon Freeman was an additional finalist, according to a news release.


“Earlier in the semester, students were challenged to create a visual representation of Dollarway’s new mission statement which is to “Collaborate, Educate and Graduate…The Whole Child,” a spokesman said in the release. “The winning design depicts the words of the new mission statement on a set of books.”


Turner received a $100 prize and a certificate. His artwork will be displayed in publications, the district website and newsletter, according to the release.


Faucette’s design depicts the cardinal mascot hovering near a banner that displays the new mission statement. Freeman’s design displayed the mission statement inside a circle. The students were honored during a brief ceremony in the high school library.


“Thanks to our administrators, cardinal ambassadors, and everyone who contributed to making this a special occasion for our deserving students,” the spokesman said.
