|Two Greenhill Students Win Prizes in Cardboard Competition|
Two Greenhill students, fifth grader Scott Wang and third grader Gillian Lebowitz, each won first prize in their respective divisions of the 2012 Cardboard Design Competition. The competition is a part of the Engineering and Humanity Week sponsored by The Hunt Institute.
Entries in the competition were to be made primarily of cardboard and fit into one of three categories: art, furniture or objects. Scott designed a white house with red accents. He drew all views of the house, front back and sides, before cutting the cardboard. He also included details like shutters and window panes.
Gillian’s winning design was a dolphin. “She wanted to do something that was fun,” said her father, Keith Lebowtiz, “and making a dophin jumping into the ocean was her creation and idea, and she made it come to life.”
Each student earned a pizza party for their entire grade and a $500 donation from the Hunt Institute to the school.
“We are really proud,” said Scott’s father Alan Wang. “Before he entered, I told him that participating in the competition was what was important, and that winning was not the point. But, we are pleased that he did win.”
The winning designs are currently on display in One Arts Plaza.
