From Tim Colling PhD., P.E., Director – Center for Technology & Training Michigan Tech University:
Over the past few months Andi Barajas (full time CTT staff and part time STC student), Cassandra Matchinski and Stephanie Hubble (both full time STC student and CTT interns) have been working with Shaughn Kern and Carol Reynolds (full time professional technical writers at CTT) to develop logos for the National Local Technical Assistance Program Association (NLTAPA http://www.ltap.org/about/) as part of a national competition. The NLTAP Association represents the 58 LTAP and TTAP (tribal) centers across the US. On an annual basis the centers jointly train over 174,000 people, in nearly 6,200 training sessions, and circulate more than 795,000 publications according to the NLTAP website. The LTAP/TTAP program has been in existence since 1982 when it was formed by the US Federal Highway Administration (FHWA).
I’m happy to announce that Stephanie Hubble’s entry was selected to be the new logo for the national association and will be used on official NLTAPA business systems such as letterhead and the website. I also understand that two of the Michigan Tech submitted entries for the competition made the top three. I think competing and winning on a national level is a testament to the skills and creativity that our staff and students have. The winning logo will be announced/unveiled at the NLTAPA annual conference in Savannah, GA on July 20th. Unfortunately Stephanie is overseas this summer and will not be able to attend the conference to receive the award, however a Andi will be at the conference accepting the award for the center.
Congratulations to all of the staff and students that worked on this competition.
