Architecture students design winning ECCCO logo

Prized include cameras, tablets and magazine subscription


Architecture Academy students Andrew Truong  and Ariana Gutierrez-Larlos are both first place winners of the Exploring College, Career and Community Options (ECCCO) logo design competition.

The competition was hosted by ConnectEd Studios at the end of last school year and the winning logos will be featured throughout the ECCCO curriculum and on the program’s website, lesson plans and all other promotional materials.

Truong said it was pretty exciting because he didn’t think he was going to win and that it taught him that any one can do it if they try.

Gutierrez-Larlos said it took her by surprise and she feels accomplished.

The students each won a graphic designer bundle, consisting of a Canon Rebel camera, a Wason Intuos Pen and Touch Small Tablet and a one-year subscription to Computer Arts Magazine.

ECCCO is a program that all three academies at Fremont High are participating in. Their goal is to help students get an internship and explore the work force.

Architecture Academy Director Phong Hoang was very pleased with his students when he announced the awards to the Fremont High School staff in an e-mail.

“Please congratulate them as they have worked extremely hard to achieve this goal and is contributing to ConnectEd Studios through their design work,” he wrote.
