VIP’s Annual Fiesta Medal Design Scholarship Winner Announced – 2023

Post Date: 11/29/2023

VIP Staffing is excited to announce the first-place winner of their annual Fiesta medal design contest, Alexa Villanueva from Cole High School. VIP Staffing awarded Villanueva a $1,000 scholarship prize for her first-place design. The winning design, featuring the VIP Staffing logo wearing a flower crown, bright colors, and a depiction of the company’s core values blends the excitement of Fiesta while accurately representing VIP Staffing as a whole.  The contest was judged by a panel of VIP Staffing customers who voted for their favorite designs. Scores were based on the contest design criteria incorporating VIP Staffing’s mission and core value statements, following certain specifications, and showcasing the VIP Staffing logo.  

Second and third-place winners were also awarded scholarships for their outstanding medal creations. Second-place winner, Hayden Lopez from Harlan High School, designed a festive floral tribute to VIP Staffing inspired by Fiesta parade floats and received a $300 scholarship. The third-place winner was awarded to Joseph Lievrouw, from Southwest Legacy High School, who designed his medal, which represents VIP staffing’s compassion and community, winning him a $200 scholarship. 

“The creativity and effort shown by all of the students who entered this year’s contest is incredible. We are proud of each student who took the time to participate, as we had more than 140 entries this year. It’s an honor to reward our winners for their hard work, and we look forward to seeing how their future designs unfold,” said President & CEO Andrew Himoff.

The scholarship contest was open to any Bexar County high school student and was facilitated through art, technology and technical departments within the high schools.
