Freshman Amy Berbert was awarded the grand prize last month for her submission in the second annual USM Foundation Art Contest. The winning art piece meant to illustrate this year’s theme — a Steve Jobs quote, “I want to put a ding on the universe” — will be featured in December on the cover of the USM Foundation Annual Report.
The winning entry, one of 88 submissions from faculty, staff and students throughout the University System, was selected because Berbert’s artwork “was clear, concise, and offered a literal and thoughtful translation of the quote.”
Read more information about the contest and the four runners up at the USM Foundation’s blog. Berbert’s artwork along with the pieces submitted by the runners up will be presented on the blog this December.
