Release Date: Friday, February 22, 2013

PHILADELPHIA, PA – Andrea Wentzell, a sophomore communications and technology major with minors in Web site design and business management, from Elmer, NJ, was selected as the winner of the 2013 Annual Conference logo design contest for the National Collegiate Honors Council. The 2013 NCHC conference will be held in New Orleans, Louisiana, from November 6-10. 


The winning logo, a black drama mask with the words “Conflict, Transformation, Creolization” in bright colors with fleur-de-lis will be used in all conference materials. Wentzell will receive complimentary registration to the 2013 Conference, a cash prize of $500 ($250 to the student and $250 to the honors program), recognition in the online pre-conference program and in the final printed conference program.


Students who were in good standing in their respective honors program during the current academic year were eligible to submit designs to the contest. To be considered, logos needed to be original work that contained no copyrighted or protected materials other then the NCHC logo.


“I feel honored to have won the contest, but also glad to have also helped our small school gain some attention nationally,” says Wentzell. “Hopefully, I can attend the conference in New Orleans this coming fall, and see my design in publication."


The mission of the National Collegiate Honors Council is to support and enhance the community of educational institutions, professionals, and students who participate in Collegiate honors education around the world.
