When plans for the 5k in November began, planners soon realized that marathon t-shirt design is a critical element in the marathon experience. After brainstorming, the planners decided to present a proposal to the Art Department at Amherst County High School for a T-shirt Design Contest with the winning entry being chosen by the NHN Board of Directors.

On September 17, after reviewing several great entries, the Board chose the design of Skylar Morton. Ms. Morton is a senior at ACHS and this year's president of the National Art Honor Society. She is pictured here receiving a Michael's gift card from CEO Garry Friend along with her teacher, Maryellen Barron.

Thank you, Ms. Morton, for your quality work! Thank you, Ms. Barron, for your wonderful cooperation in the contest process! We are so grateful to ACHS for their willingness to participate in every way possible to help further the mission of NHN!
