Winner Announced in Hoot with the Owls; Run with the Chargers Logo Design Contest

MoonTree Studios announces a winner in the Hoot with the Owls; Run with the Chargers invitational logo design contest: Alyssa Jeane Reese. Reese is a Plymouth native who has always loved storytelling and art. She is a former Ancilla College student, and a 2013 MoonTree Studios summer intern. Presently, she’s working as an Art Consultant at the Art of Dr. Seuss in Indianapolis. Creative writing, film studies, screenwriting and graphic novel illustration, with awards and recognition along the way, have distilled her passion for traditional and digital art. She is planning to continue her studies toward a degree in Concept Art from Vancouver Animation School, Canada, with an ultimate goal to work for Nickelodeon as creator and director of her own TV series. Look out world, here she comes!

The Hoot with the Owls; Run with the Chargers logo design contest was open to persons affiliated with the Center at Donaldson or Ancilla College—students, faculty, residents, or co-workers. All entries were required to be one-color line art designs. The contest closed on Friday, March 31. Entries were judged on relevance, originality and aesthetic quality, and those who participated were asked to focus on creating a design that would capture the creative spirit of MoonTree Studios and the excitement and verve of Ancilla College Cross Country.

Reese’s logo design will be used on tee-shirts and promotional materials for the Hoot with the Owls; Run with the Chargers cross-country 5K fun run/walk to be held the evening of Saturday, October 7 this year. This event will be in the evening, instead of the usual morning time slot; and participants will be traversing Lake Galbraith trails instead of paved streets. There will be luminaries lighting the way as runners trot on a prairie-lined trail, through the woods, and along the lake. There might just be the hoot of an owl to be heard along the way.

Hoot with the Owls; Run with the Chargers is a walk or run event. To help keep it safe, each participant who registers by September 15, 2017 will get a lighted bracelet and a souvenir “Hoot with the Owls; Run with the Chargers” tee shirt. This event has been planned as a fund-raiser for the Ancilla College Cross Country team and will be held rain or shine, so we ask that all participants dress appropriately. All ages are welcome to register—this is a non-sanctioned event. We would like to invite regional high school and college teams, as well as families, to take part in the fun run.
