UW-Eau Claire Student Designer
Wins Three Graphics Awards

 MAILED:  April 12, 2004

EAU CLAIRE — A University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire graphic designer received three awards in the 2004 graphics competition of the National Association for Campus Activities (NACA) Northern Plains Regional Conference. Winning entries were exhibited and the awards presented at the regional conference April 1-4 in St. Paul, Minn.

The awards recognize publications designed by UW-Eau Claire student Rachel Waddell, Elm Grove, who is employed in the Activities and Programs office.

Waddell’s promotional brochure for the University Activities Commission (UAC) received a first place award in the paid student division. Her design featured a montage of color photos of featured performers with descriptions of the missions of each of the six committees of the UAC. She earned another first place award in the paid student division with her one-color poster promoting the film “Moulin Rouge.” In the same category, she also earned honorable mention for her poster promoting Ska Fest 2004.

A May 2004 bachelor of fine arts degree candidate in graphic design, Waddell joined the staff of the Activities and Programs office during the fall of 2002 as a student graphic designer. During her tenure, she has designed logos/identities for the UW-Eau Claire Student Senate and the Viennese Ball 30th Anniversary. After graduation, Waddell plans to work in the creative department of an advertising agency.

Waddell served under the direction of Paula Stuettgen, senior coordinator, student development and programs, in the Activities and Programs office. Activities and Programs is a unit of University Centers and Programs and a longtime member of the National Association of Campus Activities.

NACA Northern Plains includes schools primarily from Montana, Wyoming, Wisconsin, the upper peninsula of Michigan, Nebraska, Iowa, Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota and the Canadian provinces of Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and western Ontario.
