Each year, Michigan Technological University’s (MTU) Parade of Nations Committee invites students from middle and high schools of surrounding districts to design and submit logos appropriate to the theme for the event. “The World is One” is this year’s theme and those entering were tasked with making an original logo to go with it on a plain white background, using solid colors (but no more than 5 colors) and with no shading. The Parade of Nations logo contest deadline was May 15 and many students throughout the area participated including Chiara Rapacci, a 17-year-old junior exchange student from
Italy at Baraga High School, who was the winner of this year’s logo contest. To read more, subscribe to the L’Anse Sentinel online, or buy a print copy at our local retailers.
