Kameryn Stockar, an 11th grader at Avon Grove Charter School, was named the winning entrant in a contest sponsored by London Grove Township that asked students at the Charter School and Avon Grove High School to submit concepts for the township's new graphic identity.
Stockar’s design was one of ten entries submitted to the township, and she was awarded a $250 check at the Board of Supervisors meeting on March 6. Each student who entered into the contest was given a set of guidelines by the township.
In her statement that accompanied her submitted design, Stockar wrote, “This logo shows London Grove Township’s farm land and development, side by side, and the White Clay Creek running through. These elements together show that the township can provide both beautiful country land and comfortable homes, so that, along with nature, the community can co-exist peacefully.”
“The first thing I did was go online to see what other townships had done, and then I just started drawing to see what I liked by incorporating different elements, and this just happened to be the one I liked the best,” said Stockar, an avid equestrian who plans to pursue her passion after she graduates.
“Kameryn's the one who came up with the ideas, and I was just a guide along the way,” said Sylvo Szabo, Stockar's visual arts teacher at Avon Grove Charter School. “We talked about things like what goes into a good logo, and how a standard logo differs from a township logo or a seal. Kameryn has an ability to compact a concept into a small package. Whereas other students focused on one or two elements, Kameryn was able to put three elements into one image, and do it effectively.”
