Awards

The Printing & Graphics Association MidAtlantic, of Columbia, recently announced the winners of the 2011 Maryland State SkillsUSA Graphic Communication competition at Printing Specialist Corp. in Glen Burnie: Jennifer Jones, from Calvert Career & Technology Academy in Calvert County, took first place at the event and will represent Maryland at the national graphic communications competition in mid-June in Kansas City; Richard Brewer, from the Center of Applied Technology North in Anne Arundel County, finished second; and Tasha Robinson, from the Carroll County Career & Technology Center, finished third.

Grants

The Verizon Foundation has given a $10,000 grant to the Maryland Humanities Council to use in promoting literacy through its One Maryland One Book program, bringing reading and discussion programs to communities across the state. The yearlong project culminates with two months of public programs, using literature to spur conversations on issues critical to Marylanders.

On April 10, 100 volunteers planted 1,000 native trees on a former farm along the Chesapeake Bay as part of regional efforts funded by Washington Gas Energy Services and Sterling Planet. About 1,300 trees were planted in late March. The trees will absorb carbon dioxide from the air and filter nitrogen from runoff from roadways and fertilized agricultural fields. Contributions totaling $150,000 were made by WGES and Sterling Planet to the Chesapeake Bay Foundation-managed Carbon Reduction Fund. J.B. Hunt Transport Services assisted the effort.

Marketing

Thomas Neuberger has been promoted to creative director of Warschawski. He has been with the Baltimore-based firm for five years. Neuberger will have increased responsibility for the overall creative direction of client campaigns and oversee the creative staff, including designers, interactive programmers and copywriters.
