South Carroll students win $50 in logo contest

June 06, 1993

South Carroll High students Todd Parks and Rebecca Aura each received a $50 gift certificate from Cranberry Mall at the Carroll County Board of Women in Business and the Trades meeting Thursday for logos they designed.

The logos were designed for Nontraditional Employment for Women, a federally funded program to place women in occupations dominated by men. Program participants will be chosen through the county Job Training Partnership Act.

Program objectives include training 17 Carroll County women for nontraditional work and successfully placing 12 of them in nontraditional occupations.

Todd's logo consisted of a T-square, computer and wrench. Rebecca's used a T-square with a rose placed on it.

"We were impressed with what Todd had done and liked the idea of a young man designing a logo for a program to help women," said Christy Olenik Lynch, the program coordinator. "Rebecca's still had that feminine touch, with the rose.

TTC "We had to pick two. We liked both those logos so much."

The 15-member board, which met for the first time on Thursday will advise program coordinators, serve as mentors and promote the idea of nontraditional work for women. All the members are women; most are employed in nontraditional occupations.

Nontraditional work is defined as occupations in which fewe than 25 percent of the workers are women.
