In celebration of its 25th anniversary, the Westland Foundation held a city-wide design competition. The Foundation asked Grades 7 to 12 students to incorporate into their designs the concept that students’ educational efforts begin in grade school and can grow into future successes. The grand prize was an iPad.
The Foundation announced that Maples Met School student Katia Hill was the winner and unveiled her design at their anniversary celebration held at Millennium Library on Feb. 13.
"My vision was to modernize the organization’s logo, and in my eyes, Westland Foundation’s tree represents growth... the growth of knowledge and maturity, and that is part of what the Foundation offers," Hill said during her speech before the unveiling.
