And, the Winner is...

Every year, Reach and Teach hosts a graphic design contest open to any student in grades 9-12. The overall goal? Creating a unique t-shirt design for the organization. The contest provides an opportunity for students to gain real-world experience and build their resumes. This year, over 370 designs were submitted by students all across the United States.

After careful consideration, the winner of the 2022 Reach and Teach T-Shirt Graphic Design Competition, selected by a team of industry professionals, is .....

Alex Hood, a senior at Tri-Point High School in Cullom, IL. After high school, Alex plans to pursue a career in Computer Science or Graphic Design. In addition to creative design, Alex enjoys playing Fortnite, art and technology.

Every design submission required adherence to a specific set of guidelines, such as color scheme, font choices, and deadlines, just as any graphic design project does in the real world. Several designs were selected to receive feedback from the Reach and Teach Chief Creative Officer, Tony Pierce, with the request for edits and resubmission.

Alex's winning design will be featured on the 2022 Reach and Teach official t-shirt, distributed to hundreds of donors, partners, and supporters from across the world.

Want a t-shirt? Simply donate $25 to Reach and Teach between now and April 15th to receive this student-designed, limited edition Reach and Teach t-shirt. Make your donation HERE.

Congratulations to Alex, her graphic design teacher, Joey Santillo, and the entire Tri-Point School District. If your school district, fellow educators, or students are achieving big goals, let us know by emailing your spotlight story to
