Custom artwork produced by local elementary school students will appear on the grounds tickets for the 2016 ShopRite LPGA Classic Presented by Acer, tournament organizers announced today. During the month of February, hundreds of students from four local schools created and submitted designs, and in March a panel of judges will select one winner from each school. In addition, Acer will award an Aspire 11 laptop to each of the four participating schools: Miller (Egg Harbor Township), Roland Rogers (Galloway Township), Leeds Ave and North Main (Pleasantville).
“We’re excited to partner with ShopRite, Acer and schools in our local district on this contest,” said Leela Narang, tournament director of the ShopRite LPGA Classic Presented by Acer. “This community is such an important part of our tournament and we’re thrilled to feature the creativity of the students.”
The winning designs will be unveiled during the tournament’s annual Media Day event in May at the Stockton Seaview Hotel and Golf Club. Each winner will receive an invitation to Media Day and a prize package including tickets and autographed merchandise.
“We are excited to see the artwork submissions from the students,” said Kim Phipps, Director, Global Marketing & Brand for Acer America. “Partnering with ShopRite on the contest is a great way to collaborate with the local community on the tournament, and to see from the kids themselves what they find compelling about it.”
