Graphic communications students at Admiral Arthur W. Radford High School won first place in the Student Print Project Design, Planning and Production category of the PrintROCKS awards. Sponsored by Pacific Printing Industries (PPI) Association, an affiliate of Printing Industries of America, this award qualifies them for the student category of the Benny Awards, part of the International Premier Print Awards competition. The entry included designs for a poster, program cover and volunteer T-shirt for a basketball invitational, says SkillsUSA advisor Lane Yokoyama. They also won Best of Division, Student, and the Mad Props Award, a special judges award for 3-D printing. Jules Van Sant, PPI’s executive director (pictured below, far right) traveled from Portland, Ore., to the Honolulu school to present the awards to the class.
