Graphic design senior Whit Connolly recently placed in the top 5 of the Student Design Competition sponsored by The Society of Publication Designers (SPD) in New York City. Whit received a prestigious honorable mention in this national contest or her humorous 4-page layout depicting how to properly make and use finger puppets. For this honor she will receive a summer internship with Time Warner publishing company’s People Magazine in Manhattan beginning in June along with complementary housing supplied by Time Warner. Whit, who is from Ennis, joins a string of Montana State University seniors who have dominated this national competition for the past 5 years. In 2008, SPD winner Paul Johnson received an internship at National Geographic Adventurer and in 2007 another MSU graduate Allison Mclean was awarded an internship at Marie Claire magazine, part of the Hearst Corporation. Congratulations!
