Macomb Community College media and communication arts student Kristen Sadlocha, 20, of Roseville, designed the winning logo for the 2020 Shorewood Kiwanis Harper Charity Cruise. Sadlocha, whose logo was chosen from more than 30 entries, received a $1,000 cash prize donated by Shorewood Kiwanis and sponsor Roy O’Brien Ford, and a matching $1,000 scholarship from Macomb Community College Foundation’s Foren Family Foundation Engineering and Advanced Technology Fund. Sadlocha is studying design and layout at Macomb and plans to graduate in May 2021.

The logo competition is held annually among students of Macomb’s media and communication arts program, providing students with the real-world experience of working with an actual client. The logo, featuring a classic Ford Thunderbird, will appear on all promotional material for the cruise including t-shirts to be sold at the cruise, with a portion of the proceeds going to Kiwanis-supported charities.

Second place went to Alex Kelley, 21, of Warren, who received a $650 cash prize and matching scholarship. Mackenzie Johnson, 21, of St. Clair Shores, took third place and received a $350 cash award and matching scholarship. Both are design and layout students at the college and plan to graduate this May.

The Shorewood Kiwanis Harper Charity Cruise will be held Wednesday, August 26, along Harper Avenue in St. Clair Shores.
