Cari Logston, of Stevenson Ranch, was named the Grand Prize winner of the Frame My Future scholarship contest sponsored by Church Hill classics. She submitted the above photo of her hand and her mother's hand with cups of tea to the contest.

 

Cari Logston, of Stevenson Ranch, is the Grand Prize Winner of the “Frame My Future” Scholarship Contest 2012, announced Connecticut-based Church Hill Classics, a manufacturer in the college diploma frame industry.
Logston will receive a $1,000 scholarship toward the 2012-2013 academic year when she attends The Master’s College in Newhall.


She plans to study communications with an emphasis on electronic media.  


As the Grand Prize winner, she has additionally won a $1,000 donation to her college’s scholarship endowment fund.  

The donation to the college will be given in her name, and it will benefit other students during their academic journey.

The photo that Logston submitted to the scholarship contest showed her own hand holding a cup of tea alongside her mother’s hand, also holding a cup of tea.

Their hands are distinctly different.

“On the right is my hand that I use to create and pursue my passion for graphic design,” said Logston. “My mom’s hand on the left, along with the rest of her body, is severely paralyzed due to multiple sclerosis.

“My hands lift, carry, feed and assist her daily.

“My hands also write, draw, design and play music.

“These hands are how I frame my future, because I will use mine to create and achieve academic success in addition to functioning for all the things my mom’s hands cannot do.”

The “Frame My Future” Scholarship Contest 2012, a nation-wide contest, asked students to submit an original “creation” expressing what they hope to achieve in their personal and professional life after college.

The entry needed to communicate: This is how I “Frame My Future.”  

Submissions included photographs, poems, essays, collages, artwork, graphic design, and other imaginative pieces.

Logston was selected from more than 10,500 entrants from all over the country.

The field of entries was narrowed down to 60 by a panel of Church Hill Classics’ judges.

After the judges had finished their work all Church Hill Classic employees were asked to vote to narrow the field further to only 24 finalists.

Logston’s photograph was chosen to be among  the 24 finalists.

There were also 36 Honorable Mentions.  

An online month-long public voting determined the final Grand Prize scholarship winners.

Logston’s entry, shown below, is posted along with the other winner’s and finalists’ entries, and can be viewed at www.diplomaframe.com/FMF2012-Winners.

The company has sponsored the nation-wide Scholarship for the last four years.
