RANDOLPH, NJ — The 2018-19 edition of the Promethean, the student produced literary publication at County College of Morris (CCM), recently received its third award of excellence.
The latest recognition was a Third Place Award in the Best Artwork-Eastern Regional category in the Community College Humanities Association (CCHA) Literary Magazine Competition. That award was for a pencil drawing, titled "Sluggish Friends," by Veronica Theobald, of Randolph. This is the first time CCM entered the Promethean in that competition.
Theobald was accepted to and will be attending the School of Visual Arts (SVA) in New York when she finishes her studies at CCM to earn her bachelor’s degree in graphic design.
“She feels that her coursework at CCM prepared her well for the challenges of the rigorous design program at SVA,” said Professor Kathy McNeil, the faculty advisor for the Promethean.
Last year, the 2018-19 edition also received two awards from Graphic Design USA: an In-House Graphic Design Award presented for materials created by in-house design departments and an American Graphic Design Award for design excellence. That marked the eighth time the Promethean received the In-house Graphic Design Award and the 14th time it earned the American Graphic Design Award in the Graphic Design USA competition.
The Graphic Design USA awards are presented for original work created by professional design firms and individuals. There is no separate category for student-produced work, meaning the Promethean in that competition is judged alongside professionally produced material.
The Promethean student design team for the 2018-19 edition consisted of Melissa Ostrander of Randolph, Kevin Manimbo of Chester, Joshua Dimatulac of Hackettstown, Harley Petrocelli of Morristown and Marissa Cook of Oak Ridge.
