The “Name the WDD Catalog” contest was launched to all NOVA Community College staff by the Workforce Development Division on September 25. The contest had a fantastic response, with more than 140 names and slogans submitted by NOVA staff. Almost 400 NOVA faculty and staff members voted on the submissions. The winning name/slogan combination was preferred by more than 60 percent of the voters. I submitted the following slogans for consideration (I even designed the covers below, practicing my layout skills my spouse is teaching me):
My last slogan entry won!
“The Workforce Link” – submitted by Pat Carrow (MA), Workforce Development Division
“Building Skills, Creating Success” – submitted by Khadijah Ali-Coleman (AL), faculty
This is the new cover of the catalog that will be delivered to Virginia residents in December:
The Workforce Development Division honored me and Pat Carrow, who came up with the winning title, with a luncheon this past Monday catered by Panera Bread (yum!)
And, we both won $75 gift cards and were given cute tote bags with the cover of the catalog on the bags.
Special thanks to the NoVA Workforce Development Division for the gifts and the opportunity to participate in the contest! To learn more about classes offered by NoVA Community College’s Workforce Development Division, click here.
