John Cooper School student wins poster contest

An 11th-grader at The John Cooper School was selected as the winner of a poster competition.

By a public vote, Cathy Zhang’s original artwork was chosen out of more than 60 entries from area students. Her poster, titled “Where STEM Gets its Roots,” depicts computer-like icons and is to be used on promotional posters, t-shirts and mugs for the upcoming SCI://TECH Exposition in January and February.

The poster competition was through SCI://TECH Wright’s collaboration with the Education for Tomorrow Alliance and area schools. It’s a partnership that encourages hands-on scientific exploration with various science, technology, engineering and math competitions and events.
