UFV students in the Graphic and Digital Design program won scholarships in two of three categories in the 2017 George Haroutian National Scholarship Awards, and came runner up in the third category. Cooper Symonds won in the design category, while Mei Noftle won in the image category. Kelsea Rice was runner up in the advertising category, and Juliana Bermudez was runner up in the image category. This marks the second year in the scholarship’s two-year history that UFV students have won at least one of the prestigious scholarships awarded by the magazine Applied Arts in honour of its founder. Last year, Mila Mukhortva won one of the inaugural awards.
