Teacher Invites Students to Design Business Logo

A local teacher is inviting middle and high school students in Toombs and Montgomery County to design the artwork for her latest business venture.

Vidalia Heritage Academy High School English Teacher Donna Beall has always had a passion for both youth and students, which has inspired her to invite students to create a logo for her new pet boarding and dog training/enrichment business, The Teacher’s Paws (with squawks and claws!), which will open at a later date this year. The goal is for a “winning” logo or student’s original art to be put on the building sign, business cards, and any related business materials.

This opportunity for students has been structured as a contest, as the top three entries will receive a prize of a monetary credit toward future boarding or training for their pets. In addition to this monetary credit, first place winner will have a chance to see their artwork utilized as the face of the business and will receive a $100 savings bond – a detail which Beall was inspired to include based on her own experience. “I cashed a $100 savings bond, which I won from a writing contest in 1991, to help me with the business expenses,” she explained. “For this reason, I want to offer the winner a $100 savings bond to go full circle.”

The guidelines for this contest are simple: • All art and/or text should be the student’s own, original design. No material should be taken from a preexisting commercial source.

• All art should be turned in physically to the Downtown Craft House, located at 206 Mosley Street in Vidalia.

• Best paper/card stock is advised for submission of original art, and color and unique ideas are appreciated.

• ough canines will be the facility's primary focus, Teacher’s Paws will also offer limited boarding to other pet varieties as well. Winning art pieces may consider including small animals (cats, birds, rabbits, guinea pigs, etc.) in their artwork.

All submissions are due by April 3, and judging will be conducted soon after. For more information, contact Donna Beall at 912-293-7007.
