Nate Korb, a freshman at Iola-Scandinavia High School, recently won a welcome sign design contest, which will welcome hunters to Iola.
The project was part of the Computer Applications class taught by Laura Scott.
“This is a project that we did with the Chamber of Commerce, because we wanted to strengthen the relationship between the school and community,” said Scott.
Chamber President Greg Loescher said, “It’s a good way for the kids to be involved with the Chamber and their community. Last spring, they were designing welcoming signs for the Old Car Show. We are hoping to have a project each semester for the students to work on.”
The posters were created with Adobe InDesign.
“The kids were taught how to use the program and then, I turned them loose,” said Scott. “I then took the posters to a meeting with the Chamber.”
Loescher said, “Our Chamber members made comments on each poster, and then the students revised their project. We voted on the best one, which was hard to do because they were all good this go around. There is lots of talent”
As the winner of the contest, Korb’s sign will be on display at local businesses throughout the area.
Korb is the son of Brian and Heidi Korb, of Iola.
