The suspense is over.
The winners have been chosen for The Pioneer Woman Goes Red, a fashion design contest sponsored by Gail Cope (adjunct faculty member in Art History at TWU) and the TWU Libraries in conjunction with American Heart Month and Go Red for Women.
And the winners are . . .
Kaitlin Caro (First Place)
Julio Hernandez (Second Place)
Laura Delgado (Third Place)
Stephanie Andrus (Honorable Mention)
Caira Heinze (Honorable Mention)
Winners were chosen on the basis of creativity by a panel of judges. Cash prizes, the result of a generous donation by contest sponsor Gail Cope, were presented to the winners on Friday, March 13, 2015. First place winner Kaitlin Cato was presented with $300; second place finisher Julio Hernandez won $200; third place winner Laura Delgado received $100; and honorable mention recipients Stephanie Andrus and Caira Heinze received $50 each.
All contest entries are on display on the first floor of the Blagg-Huey Library. See the five winning entries in the living room area (toward the back of the building); other entries are displayed near the Information Desk and printers.
The Pioneer Woman statue at TWU is a symbol of the indomitable spirit and heroism of the pioneer women who settled Texas. American Heart Month and Go Red for Women are annual national campaigns aimed at promoting awareness of and eradicating heart disease, the number one killer of American women.
Congratulations to the winners of The Pioneer Women Goes Red--and thank you to every entrant. Because of each of you, this contest was a fun, creative, competitive, inspiring Pioneer success.
