The Print and Graphics Scholarship Foundation (PGSF), a nonprofit organization working to build the future workforce of the graphic communications industry through educational scholarships, is pleased to announce the 2022 winners of its annual poster and t-shirt design contest.
The full-time student poster winner is Emma Kostick, an upcoming senior at Appalachian State University in North Carolina. “I am very honored to receive this award, and it has inspired me to keep pushing towards my career goals in graphic design. I hope I can inspire others like me to gain the confidence they need in order to reach their dreams and desired goals.” said Emma.

The t-shirt contest winner is William C. Glass of West Hall High School in Oakwood, Georgia, class of 2023. Will comments, “I was diagnosed with high-functioning autism with Asperger’s Syndrome, and my gift is in graphic art and design. I want to study and learn new techniques to develop and produce fresh and exciting graphic art and design. Being surrounded by art and being a part of the creative process is my happy space.”

“Will has always been creative and highly involved in our West Hall High School Spartan print shop,’ comments Caitlin Hickey, Glass’ graphic design teacher at West Hall High School. “I’ve had the pleasure of teaching him for two years now, and his design skill set has grown exponentially. Winning this competition and learning about PGSF has been incredibly beneficial for his future. We are so proud of him!”
Each contest winner receives $500 from PGSF. These funds benefit full-time students pursuing a career in graphic communications as well as employees currently working in the industry looking to obtain financial assistance to enroll in part-time classes and advance their careers. The t-shirt and posters will be produced and available at the 2022 Americas Print Show and Printing United. We will also showcase these throughout the year to promote scholarships available.
“PGSF would like to thank and acknowledge the high school and college educators from all over the country who include the poster and t-shirt competition in their lesson plans every year,” said Dianne Bullas, Director of Operations for PGSF.
Information on the 2022/23 PGSF poster and t-shirt competition will be emailed this fall and posted on the PGSF website. For information on scholarships, contests, grants, and ways to donate, visit www.pgsf.org.
