CTE Students Design Award Poster

Award," an award that is presented to teachers who demonstrate outstanding technology integration, they knew just where to turn.  Mr. Churchill's and Mr. Hogg's DIM (Digital Interactive Media) classes set out to design a great poster for award recipients to showcase their achievement.  They used Photoshop software, which is the industry standard is graphic design, and their results were above an beyond what anyone could hoped for!  In the end, A. Padilla had the winning design (shown above).  Click here for the complete list of finalists.
