Danielle Valenzuela is awarded with her design after submitting it into the 2017 Northwest STEAM Fest T-shirt design.

From a panel of over 200 judges, senior Danielle Valenzuela’s drawing for the Northwest STEAM Fest’s T-Shirt Design Contest was chosen to be the event’s official shirt for 2017.

It was announced on Feb. 28 that Valenzuela’s design was picked amongst 74 other elementary, middle and high school students’ entries. The artwork submitted revolved around the meaning behind the event: to share ideas that can help solve real world problems.

Her design consists of a young girl standing in front of a tree imagining an invention that uses the resources it gives to help people across the globe. The tree would create water using its created oxygen and stored hydrogen. That water would then be used to help people across the world that don’t have access to clean water.

Valenzuela’s entry will become this year’s official shirt at the Northwest STEAM Fest on March 4 at Cleveland Charter High School. Valenzuela is a cartoonist for The Pearl Post and a page design editor for Prestige Yearbook.
