The Clark County Council honored Heidi Hayden, who designed the winning logo, and three other Heritage students during its Tuesday night meeting
VANCOUVER — A Heritage High School student designed the winning entry in a logo contest for the Clark County Parks Advisory Board.
The Clark County Council honored Heidi Hayden, who designed the winning logo, and three other Heritage students during its Tuesday night meeting. Eli Entwistle crafted the second-place logo, and Jennifer Jones and Viktoria Kryshtal, jointly designed the third-place entry.
All four students were presented with trophies and gift baskets during Tuesday’s council meeting.
The Felida Neighborhood Association paid for the trophies. The Parks Foundation of Clark County solicited donations for some of the items in the gift baskets, with private residents providing the remainder. No county funds were used for trophies or gifts.
Troy Wayrynen, a digital arts teacher at Heritage High School, also was honored at Tuesday’s meeting. Wayrynen incorporated the contest into his graphic design class.
Last year, the Parks Advisory Board decided to tap the artistic talents of county students in developing a board logo. Board members sent information to all public and private high schools in Clark County. Students from four high schools — Fort Vancouver, Heritage, Hudson’s Bay and Skyview — submitted nearly 50 entries.
A four-person selection committee reviewed all entries and narrowed the field down to the top 10 entries. All entries were assigned numbers so judges were not swayed by names or schools and based their decisions solely on design factors.
The Parks Advisory Board, at its Feb. 9 meeting, reviewed the 10 entries and narrowed the list down to the top three. A final vote was taken to determine the first, second and third place entries.
