BELLEFONTAINE- The One-On-One Program, a youth mentor agency serving Logan County since 1984, recently received a facelift.
The program now has three phases to volunteer including: letter writing mentor, activities mentor and traditional mentor.
In addition to providing three new phases to choose from when volunteering, the One-On-One program felt a need for a new look and approached the Ohio Hi-Point Printing and Graphics class to host a logo challenge.
Students who wished to participate in the challenge were asked to create a logo that embodied the mission and purpose behind the program as well as bring the logo to the 21st century.
The winner of the logo contest and a Chamber Choice gift certificate was Jack (JJ) Birt, a current graduate from the Printing and Graphics lab and West Liberty-Salem High School.
