North and South Rivers Watershed Association (NSRWA) partnered with South Shore Vocational Technical High School (SSVT) to come up with this year’s Great River Race logo. The partnership began in 2016 when students from the SSVT Environmental Science class participated in the NSRWA Estuary Explorers program.

This year NSRWA collaborated with the Design and Visual Communications classes. The school was a natural choice as it draws students from all across the South Shore. Teacher Martha Paradis had her Junior class students come up with logo ideas for the Great River Race as a class assignment. There were lots of great entries, but the overwhelming winner was the design by 17-year-old Scituate resident Adiana Dias.

When asked to create the logo for NSWRA, Adiana said, “I drew a lot of different ideas for the race logo, some more detailed than others, but I was drawn to the simplicity of the design that was selected. It says a lot with just a few lines”.

Paradis describes Adiana’s style as “clean and modern”.  She also said, “Adiana works hard to exhaust all possible ideas in an effort to reach the best solution for a client. She exhibits great potential.”

Thank you to South Shore Vocational Technical High School for participating in the logo contest! For more information on the Great River Race on August 11, and how you can participate, go to our website
