Logo winner is new Fest' grand marshal

Cottage Grove native Staci Paul's first crack at logo creation was officially deemed a success -- at least by the Strawberry Fest' committee.

Paul's logo design and theme was chosen for this year's Strawberry Fest', and for winning the contest, Paul will be this year's grand marshal.

"It will be good to be part of the Strawberry Fest'," and good for her portfolio, Paul said.

Paul, a sophomore at the University of Wisconsin-Stout plans to go in to the graphic design business when she graduates.

She said she had an inkling that her design might be chosen when the committee asked for a higher-resolution version of her work, but she was still surprised by the win.
