McAuliffe is proud to share the list of winners in the city’s Bring Your Own Bag logo design contest. Many of the winners are McAuliffe scholars and worth noting is that the 3rd place winner, Isaiah Vazquez, is a McAuliffe alumni. The committee shared thoughtful feedback on each design and the reason each was chosen. We are are looking forward to seeing Jonathan’s design printed on the new bags.

 

Winners:

First place: Jonathan DeAndrade. 6th grade, Christa McAuliffe Charter School
Prize: $50 gift card from Barnes and Noble
We chose this logo as our winner because of its creative cartoon and graphic elements. We like that Jonathan incorporated a hand holding a bag. We think this will help remind people to bring their own bags when going shopping.

Second place: Samantha Steenbrugen. 6th grade, Christa McAuliffe Charter School
Prize: $30 gift card from Panera
We love the beautiful drawn vegetables and paper bag and the stop sign as a reminder to bring your bag when going shopping.

Third place: Isaiah Vazquez. 11th grade, Joseph P Keefe Technical High School
Prize: $20 gift card from Target
We liked very much the simplicity of this logo and the clean use of blues and greens to convey the message.

Honorable Mentions:
Dariana Lascano. 8th grade, Fuller Middle School
Prize: $10 gift card from Starbucks
We liked that she used the globe as the main graphic element and the words: Save the World One Bag at a Time.

Kassandra Tiburcio 11th grade, Joseph P Keefe Technical High School
Prize: $10 gift card from B Sisters Cafe
We liked that Kassandra incorporated a shopping cart next to a bag. We loved the simplicity and the use of soft blues and greens too.

Leyla Burgos, 6th grade, Christa McAuliffe Charter School
Prize: $10 gift card from Ben and Jerry
Beautiful drawing of a bag full of vegetables and nice bold, colorful words next to it.

Kenzie Myers, 6th grade, Christa McAuliffe Charter School
Prize: $10 gift card from Dulce de Leche
This logo stole the heart of one of our BYOB team members, Brigitte Griffin. This is a Brigitte Honorable Mention. She loved the seal holding a reusable bag sitting on an ice island and the penguins silhouettes in the nearby islands.
