William Strutin, of Rockaway, a graphic design major at County College of Morris (CCM), recently was presented with an Art Directors Club of New Jersey (ADCNJ) State Scholarship Award.
This year, more than 100 portfolios were submitted to the state competition that was judged at CCM in late April.
Only 10 students from New Jersey’s four-year and two-year colleges were selected statewide to receive this award.
“This is truly a great accomplishment for William to have had his work selected from all the fine portfolios that were entered,” noted Professor Stephen H. Longo, coordinator of the Graphic Design Program at CCM.
Judges for the competition consisted of creative directors, art directors, web branding designers, package designers, and owners of large ad agencies and design studios.
As an award recipient, Strutin was presented with a $500 scholarship, free membership to the ADCNJ for two years, a display of his work on the ADCNJ's website, and an invitation to the professional show's dinner on Friday, May 20, where he will be publicly acknowledged.
