The JSU Student Government Association took a prominent and visible stance for increased support for higher education at the State Capitol on February 27 by creating a beautiful banner to display.
The 2014 rally for higher education was held at the state house in Montgomery, with SGA bringing home the first place trophy for the JSU banner.
The JSU entry was completely hand drawn and painted by Jade Wagner, Courtney Curtis, Ariel Tolson, and Raven Scott. The banner was hand-painted on a bed sheet, much like many other sheet signs that are hung up around JSU’s campus.
The unique sheet sign, along with the attractive design, gave JSU an edge over the competition and earned the winning trophy.
The purpose of the banner design contest is to visually draw attention to the lack of funding allocated for higher education in the State of Alabama.
