Ohio Hi-Point student designs new Vicario’s pizza box

Brittany Ball (center) stands with Rob Richard of Vicario’s and Molly Smith, Director of Community Development and Special Projects for the Coalition.

Ohio Hi-Point Printing and Graphics student, Brittany Ball, recently won a design contest through a partnership with the Suicide Prevention Coalition of Logan and Champaign Counties and Vicario’s Pizza in Bellefontaine.

The design, focused on raising awareness about suicide prevention, will be printed on every Vicario’s Pizza box beginning in a few weeks.

According to Molly Smith, Director of Community Development and Special Projects, the design contest was a way to connect with young people to talk about suicide prevention and the help that is available within the communities.

“This project gave students the chance to learn and understand in a positive way and it’ll make a difference in someone’s life,” commented Smith.

The entire Printing and Graphics class entered the design contest and a panel of four judges selected Ball as the winning design.

Ball is a senior from Graham High School.

If you or someone you know needs help, call the 24 hour local hotline at 1-800-224-0422 and for more information visit the Logan/Champaign Counties Suicide Prevention Coalition online.
