Beaver student wins Keystone Press Award

3/15/2010 —

Justin Vorbach, a junior business major at Penn State Beaver, won an honorable mention in the layout and design category of the Keystone Press Awards' 2010 Collegiate Division, a statewide press competition sponsored by the Pennsylvania Newspaper Association.

Vorbach won for a cover page he designed for The Roar, the Beaver campus student newspaper, titled "Oh Boy, George" which featured a dollar bill with a crying George Washington illustrating a story on the economy. The contest was open to all four-year colleges and universities in Pennsylvania. Vorbach, who works for the Admissions Office, is also art editor of The Roar.

In addition, last month Vorbach was one of three Beaver campus members to win a Gold CUPPIE Award in the Advertising Campaign category from CUPRAP: The Association of Communicators in Education. The award was for “Get In On The Secret” which featured personalized postcards and T-shirts packaged as books that were sent to prospective students in the fall. Dan Pinchot, director of enrollment; Cathy Benscoter, marketing and Web specialist, and Vorbach created the campaign.
