JOHNS CREEK, Ga. — Students from Northview High School won first, second and third place for their original T-shirt designs for a Clean Air Campaign contest.
In addition, a Brookwood Elementary student in Forsyth County won second place for her comic strip.
Kicked off in January, the contest invited students in kindergarten through eighth grades to develop original comic strips. High school students were asked to create original T-shirt designs.
All entrants were charged with illustrating the positive effects that taking the bus to school, turning off an idling car engine or carpooling to school can have on Georgia’s air quality.
Jaimie Shing, a senior from Northview High School in Johns Creek, won first place for her T-shirt design.
Her design ties the clean air cause back to student health with her detailed drawing of a set of young lungs emblazoned with the slogan “Help Save Us!”
Sophia Choi, a freshman, received second place for her “Be the Leader for Clean Air” T-shirt.
Senior Carey Jang won third place for her “Lung Protection” T-shirt.
Emily Hwang, a fifth-grader at Brookwood Elementary in Suwanee, won second place with her comic strip entitled “Go Green!”
All winning entries will be featured on the Clean Air Campaign’s website and social media channels.
