Art students win awards

Spectrum Volume 18 Issue 34 - June 27, 1996

Two students in the class of Peggy Turner of Virginia Tech's art department recently won distinguished awards.

Tara Snyder, a student in last year's graduating class and in Advertising Design in the fall 1995 session, won one of the 16 third-place awards of $500 in the Anheuser-Busch "Know When to Say When" 1995 National Collegiate Alcohol Awareness competition for the "superior creativity" in her entry, Over the Limit. This is the second consecutive year Turner's students have placed in this national competition, and this year there were more than 2,200 entries from colleges in all 50 states.

Also, at the 1996 Addy Awards of the Roanoke Ad Federation, student Jason Mullins won an award in the student category of collateral materials for his "Eye Chart" sexual-harassment poster commissioned by Tech President Paul Torgersen and the EOAA office. The poster was commissioned as a class project and competition in the Advanced Visual Communications course last spring. The awareness poster is now posted over the entire campus.
