  • High School Visual Communication teacher, Don Parr, asked his class to respond to an open "call for entries" from the town of Elk, Washington. The town needed a logo design for their Pioneer Days Festival. The winning design would be used for all things related to their event including but not limited to; clothing, signs and posters. This contest was open to high school students, college students, adults, and design professionals alike. Senior, Kera Petrin submitted the winning entry! Mr. Parr, and the rest of Medical Lake School District is very proud of Kera. Mr. Parr said ~ "this is how you get a reputation in the design field." Pioneer Days
