Sticker Contest Winner





We wish to congratulate Samantha Cote, winner of the Partnership’s sticker design contest.  And we wish to thank her for the great design.  We asked students to create a design that conveyed the purpose of the Partnership and also incorporated UMF’s colors.  Samantha’s design does both beautifully.  Presented at the Partnership’s Annual Recognition Dinner on March 22nd, Samantha’s design received rave reviews from the students, faculty, staff and community partners present at this annual event sponsored by Bangor Savings Bank.
