Dodge City Community College Foundation Announces Third Annual Christmas Card Design Contest Winners

Dodge City Community College Foundation announced today that Adella Goldworm is the first placewinner of the 2015 student Christmas card design contest.  The second place winner is Rose Duong, and third place goes to Gisella Herrera.

Adella is 20 years old and is a Graphic Design (Art) Major. Her favorite media is ink. She will be attending Fort Hays State University in the fall of 2016 where she will be finishing her BFA in Graphic Design. After graduation, she will pursue a career as a Graphic Designer and Illustrator.

“This year’s Christmas card design is a serene winter landscape enveloped by a snow globe expertly rendered by Adella Goldworm. When choosing the design for the card, the committee looks for several elements 

"Next, we look at the quality of the artwork. This is not   subjective as there are technical elements and principals of design that make an artwork pleasing to the eye, as well as the artist’s mastery of their media.  

 Finally, we consider the originality of the design and its theme. It’s a difficult task, but it is a thrill to see our student’s artwork printed and sent out to bring happiness to everyone during the Christmas season,” stated Jennifer Nolan, Asst Professor of Art.

 “This year, we received entries from students in a variety of different majors, with artwork from a vast variety of mediums. We had about 20 entries this year, which is our most to date. We hope to grow this contest year to year, and continue to bring awareness and recognition to the talented students that we host here at Dodge City Community College," stated Roger Proffitt, Foundation Director.

Adella will receive $250 and 50 Christmas Cards for personal use. The 2nd place winner, Rose Duong, will receive $150, and the third place winner, Gisella Herrera, will receive $100.

The top three entries will be made into Christmas cards and will be sold for personal use. Cards will be available for purchase starting Monday, December 7th in the Foundation office and DCCC Bookstore.

Contestants whose art wasn’t selected are welcome to pick up their entries in the Foundation office, located in the bottom floor of the student union.
