MENOMINEE – The Menominee County Road Commission has a new logo – thanks to the efforts of local high school students.

The Menominee County Road Commission was looking for a new logo and held a logo design contest this spring. The competition challenged local students to come up with the winning design. Over 100 drawings were submitted by students from Menominee, Stephenson and Bark River-Harris High Schools.

The Bark River-Harris Photography/GD class taught by Terra Stenberg decided to get involved by teaching a lesson on logo design.

“I try to incorporate as many real-world design challenges into my lessons as possible. This was a great opportunity for students to learn about logo design and the impact of art,” said Stenberg.

A design submitted by Bark River-Harris sophomore Alison Kleiman won the logo contest.

“I have quite a few very hard working students who are interested in making art part of their future and Alison is one of them. Congratulations to her on her design selection,” said Stenberg.

The logo was professionally finalized and placed on all Menominee trucking gear and apparel.

The Bark River-Harris Art Department received a $500 grant from the commission for winning the competition. Kleiman received a hoodie with the logo, a set of prismacolor art pencils, and drawing supplies. All participating students received a Menominee County hat.
