Athens State Takes Top Awards at the State Poster Competition


February 26, 2014

ATHENS, Ala. - The first, second and third place Post-secondary Division winners in the statewide Alabama Department of Rehabilitation Services 2014 “Ability Counts” Poster Competition are all from the Athens State University Art Department. Rachel Monroe was awarded first prize, Autumn Letson took second place and Megan Graves received third place. All are students in the Graphic Design track in the Art Department at Athens State University.

The purpose of this competition is to reward artistic ability and excellence, and to promote awareness of the talents that people with disabilities bring to the job market. This year’s theme is “Because We Are EQUAL to the Task”.

“Our students did a tremendous job of working creatively and professionally with this task, “ said the student’s instructor, Pamela Keller, Professor of Art for Athens State University at the Alabama Center for the Arts in Decatur, Alabama. “ Students in the Advanced Graphic Design class enter this competition annually and because we have top quality students, we usually do have one or two posters place in the awards but this is the first year we have taken all three competition prizes. We are extremely proud of the talent in our students and their level of ability.”

The competition prizes for the Post-secondary division are 1st place - $300, 2nd place - $200 and 3rd place - $100. The winners will be recognized at an upcoming awards luncheon in Montgomery.
