Freeport, TX — Port Freeport recently selected winners of the 18th Annual Logo Drawing Contest for its Take-A-Child Fishing Tournament (TACFT) to be held on May 5th at Freeport Municipal Park. Brazoria County’s youth ages 3-14 are eligible to enter the contest and are invited by fliers distributed to the schools within the area.
The first-place winner of the TACFT Logo Drawing Contest is Isabella Nunez, a first-grade student at O.A Fleming in Freeport. Isabella was awarded a framed print of her drawing and a $100 Visa gift card. Mikalah Hegefeld, an eighth-grade student at Lake Jackson Intermediate, won second place and was presented a $50 Visa gift card and a framed print of her drawing. The third-place winner, Serena Aad, a seventh-grade student from Brazosport Christian School, also received a framed print of her drawing and won a $25 Visa gift card.
“This year students from 26 schools in Brazoria County submitted a total of 320 drawings.” said Port Freeport Executive Director/CEO Phyllis Saathoff. “The talent of the local young artists makes the process of selecting finalists a challenge. We appreciate their participation and look forward to their attendance at the May 5th Fishing Tournament.”
The port commission and staff voted anonymously for their favorite drawing from the top 10 finalists. The winning logo is used on all fliers, posters, advertisements, and t-shirts for the tournament.
Port Freeport Commission Chairman Paul Kresta said, “On behalf of the Port Commission, I would like to congratulate the winners of the logo drawing contest. These students are very talented, and we appreciate the support from the schools in helping us connect with the students and their families.”
