Lamar student wins state graphic design competition

Jolee Rector will now compete in the national competition

LAMAR, Mo. – A Lamar, Missouri high school student is set to participate in a national competition.

Jolee Rector placed second at the district level of the Skills USA Competition and won state. She participated in the graphic design competition.

“Basically they give you a company name, (that’s) what it’s all about,” said Rector. “You have to create an ad that makes people want to buy it or make people want to use that company.”

The competitions have been held virtually using two cameras. That will continue for nationals.
