Belmont, Mass. – After reviewing all of the applications, officials from Boston Arts Academy (BAA), Constellation SENIOR PLAYERS Championship, Constellation Energy and Belmont Country Club declared Angie Ortiz the winner of the Constellation SENIOR PLAYERS poster contest.
Ortiz, a senior at BAA who will be attending Lesley University in the fall on full scholarship, will have the honor of having her poster design produced for distribution in the Boston area in support of the 2015 Constellation SENIOR PLAYERS Championship, which will be played at Belmont Country Club June 9-14.
Boston Arts Academy is a public high school that places importance on academics as well as the visual and performing arts. It serves more than 440 students in grades 9-12, and students spend up to three hours per day in arts classes, with additional time devoted to preparing for performances or exhibitions. BAA is proud to have a lengthened school day and be the only high school in the state that is designated as an Expanded Learning Time school by the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education.
“The Constellation SENIOR PLAYERS poster contest was presented to, and completed by, my Design 4 Senior Visual Artists,” Robert Leyen, a faculty member in visual arts at BAA, said. “From a teacher’s perspective, it is always great to have students work with a real client on a real world project. It helps students to understand what it means to work as a design professional and motivates them to work harder and hold themselves to a higher standard.”
Once Leyen’s students submitted their original poster designs centered on promotion of the Constellation SENIOR PLAYERS, six different teachers and faculty juried the posters and the top choices were presented to officials from the championship, Constellation Energy and Belmont Country Club.
“Belmont Country Club is very proud of Angie Ortiz and the art work that she did on behalf of the Constellation SENIOR PLAYERS Championship,” said John Fields, PGA Director of Golf at Belmont Country Club. “This classic piece of work not only captures the spirit of the event, but also the essence of Belmont Country Club. Congratulations to all the nominees who took part in the poster contest and to the Boston Arts Academy for its participation in the 2015 Constellation SENIOR PLAYERS Championship.”
The BAA poster contest is an example of the difference the Constellation SENIOR PLAYERS Championship makes in the local communities in which it plays.
“We are proud to sponsor a championship that continues to make a positive impact in the community,” said John Bennett, vice president of sales and general manager of Constellation’s Northeast region. “Constellation supports hands-on education, and this program gave BAA students the opportunity to put their skills to work on a real-world project. The professional work they put forward is impressive.”
Ortiz’s poster will be produced and distributed by students around the Boston area in advance of the championship in June.
The Constellation SENIOR PLAYERS Championship, the third major of the Champions Tour season, will be played in Boston from June 9-14 at Belmont Country Club.
