Puyallup teen wins Ethnic Fest poster contest

Incoming Puyallup High School senior Iris Woo won the grand prize in this year’s Ethnic Fest Poster Contest, which drew 45 entries from nine Pierce County high schools. The award carries with it a $200 cash prize furnished by Tacoma advertising and public relations firm JayRay.

Woo couldn’t accept her prize in person at yesterday’s Pierce County Council meeting because she was out of town with her family.

Puyallup High School students’ designs also took the second and third place honors; Hope Leal won second place and $100, and Sang Woo Shin was awarded third place and $50. Brittany Swan of Tacoma School of the Arts and Roderick Belford of Washington High School received honorable mentions.

The 25th annual Ethnic Fest is July 24 and 25 from noon to 7 p.m. in Tacoma’s Wright Park.
