Chattahoochee Technical College student Miriam Mawer, of Acworth, has been named the winner of the Technical College System of Georgia’s 2017 Winners’ Book design competition. Her design will be used in the 2017 Winners’ Book and other publications for the 2017 Georgia Occupational Award of Leadership and Rick Perkins Award for Excellence in Technical Instruction. Mawer, who plans to graduate this May with an associate degree in design and media production technology, learned about the opportunity through instructor Glenn Reid. Reid said he regularly encourages students to enter competitions because they reflect situations designers face on the job and there are accolades for the winner. “Working with a ‘client’ on a design project is what they are training to do; most of my students realize that and are happy to knock out a few additional projects for fame and fortune,” Reid said. For Mawer, those accolades include being awarded a $500 check from TCSG in addition to having her design featured in state publications.
