PGSF Opens Annual Poster Design Contest

PGSFThe Print and Graphics Scholarship Foundation (PGSF) is holding its annual poster design competition to promote the hundreds of college scholarships it offers students yearly. The winning posters will be showcased in schools across the United States, and contest winners will receive plaques to display in their schools. Two winning entrants will each receive a $500 check, an award certificate, and recognition in PGSF’s promotional materials.

Educators are encouraged to offer the design competition as a real-world working assignment. High school and college students are invited to submit poster designs by June 1, 2022. Contest winners will be notified before June 30th.

“Each year, PGSF dispenses over 200 scholarships ranging in value from $2,000 to $5,000, and we are asking students to design a poster to promote these award opportunities. We encourage communities all around the U.S. to connect with the local schools, especially on social media, to share information about this design contest as well as careers in the graphics industry,” comments Jules Van Sant, Chair, PGSF.
