Hannah Summers, a sixth-grader, won the 14th annual Student Stride for Education logo contest.
Her entry was selected out of 21 from middle schools in the Washougal School District.
Hannah’s logo of a panther with the words “Built for speed,” will be used on T-shirts and promotional materials for the community event, to be held Saturday, May 20, at Fishback Stadium at Washougal High School.
Her mom, Jennifer, said when she told her daughter that there had been a voicemail saying that she had won the art contest, Hannah was shocked.
“She was so excited!” recalled Jennifer.
In addition to seeing her logo on race promotional materials, Hannah was awarded a $50 cash prize.
The Student Stride for Education is a community race designed to raise money for the Washougal Schools Foundation. The Stride is supported by local businesses, with sponsorship dollars to go directly to classrooms. Grants help create learning experiences that wouldn’t otherwise be possible.
The event includes student length runs (by grade level), and an adult 5K run/walk. Participants receive a commemorative T-shirt, race-day medal, bottle of water and finish line treats.
