Jim Thorpe siblings take top honors
A brother and sister team from Jim Thorpe Area High School students took top honors at a statewide contest for media design.
Nikolas and Gabrielle Cinicola won first place in the Logo and Graphic Design category at the 2021 Pa. High School Media & Design Competition, held at Dickinson College in Carlisle.
They were tasked with creating a logo for next year’s edition of the contest. The winning logo, which includes the name of the competition with subtle icons like a pen and the liberty bell, will be used to promote the competition throughout the coming year.
In order to qualify for the state competition, the Cinicolas had to win a local competition hosted by Carbon Lehigh Intermediate Unit 21. In that competition, Jim Thorpe classmates Jason Chiulli and Connor Rodgers took second in programming, Tanner Lux and James Taddei took second in web design, Rachel Alexander took third in graphic design; and Ehren Hassler and Kate Newsted took first place in graphic and logo design (middle school division).
