Student logo chosen for Primo's Run

Snazzy design is proof that art education is working

Grant Herzog, a senior at San Ramon Valley High School, was chosen the winner of the student competition to select the artwork for the 2008 Primo's Run for Education. His logo will be used on thousands of shirts, banners, posters and other materials promoting the largest annual run in the Tri-Valley, which benefits the San Ramon Valley Education Foundation.

"This year's logo represents a celebration of 25 great years in this community," said Executive Director Vanessa Chan. "We are proud that a student designs our logos year after year. It speaks volumes of the artistic work being done in our schools."

The design was chosen by the Primo's Run committee from 100 student entries. Herzog will receive $100 for his winning entry and the high school art department will receive $150. Herzog enjoys art "because of the creative freedom," he said, and in the fall, he will attend Montana State University to study film.

The Primo's Run for Education is the largest and most visible fundraiser conducted by the San Ramon Valley Education Foundation. In 2007, Primo's Run had a record-breaking year with 4,700 runners. The event raised more than $110,000 with the help of 400-plus volunteers logging in over 7,000 volunteer hours.

The 2008 Primo's Run for Education will take place Sunday, Oct. 19. The event includes a 5K run in San Ramon and a half-marathon that stretches from downtown Danville to Iron Horse Middle School in San Ramon.
