Local High Schooler Wins High Honors at State Competition
November 15, 2017
Eight Glasgow High School's JMG (Jobs for Montana Graduates) students participated in the 2017 LEAD Montana Conference held in Billings on Oct. 31. These students competed in two events, Jobs for America's Graduates (JAG) Leadership and a logo competition.
Among 26 other entries submitted by students around the state for the logo competition, junior Ashlyn Aten's logo won first place. "This is the first time I have won something like this," Aten exclaimed. Her win is a first for the club. In last year's competition, they won second place with Lexie Pehlke's logo.
In order to participate, students had to choose one logo to represent them at the conference, and Aten logo was picked by her peers to represent GHS. Aten will achieve high recognition with her logo, as it will be placed on all trophies, t-shirts, correspondences and programs when JMG students around the state compete in the IGNITE conference this spring in Billings. According to JMG advisor Jill Page, GHS students will compete in several academic competitions. Another bonus of winning the competition was meeting Montana Lieutenant Governor Mike Cooney.
