Halsey Designathon/Hackathon

The Spring Halsey Hackathon featured a Designathon this past Saturday.  Students were given a social issue to promote via graphic design editing tools.  They were introduced to Graphic Design Principles and Graphic Design software.  Posters were created by groups that addressed a social issue.  Students were judged in the following categories and the winners are listed below.
