Zachary G. Bird, of South Williamsport, won two silver awards in the Student American Advertising Awards District 2 competition, held recently in New York City.

Bird graduated from Pennsylvania College of Technology in May with a Bachelor of Science degree in graphic design.

His “Bijou Theatre Arts & Events Guide” in the special event materials category and his “Is College Tuition Really Too High?” magazine feature were the two designs honored at the district level. Both designs had captured gold awards in the regional competition hosted by the American Advertising Federation Northeast Pennsylvania, making them eligible to move on to the district contest.
