NIC student wins scholarship through scratch ticket design contest

North Idaho College graphic design student Marcelle Moe of St. Maries recently won a $100 scholarship from the Idaho Lottery for her winning design of a scratch ticket.

“The tickets were judged on creativity, visual appeal, play style and marketability and we got some great entries,” said Mike Helppie, sales and marketing director with the Idaho Lottery. “Judging was not easy.”

The first, second and third place overall winners received scholarships and their scratch ticket design will be printed and sold by the Idaho Lottery. The first and second place winners were from the University of Idaho and the third place winner was a student from Idaho State University.

In addition to the top three winners, one student was selected from each school as the recipient of a $100 scholarship.

Moe's “Cash Scratch Fever” design was the winning entry from NIC.

“There were so many elements that went into this project, from coming up with a catchy phrase to developing the game,” Moe said. “It was more than just the design, which made it a very valuable and fun learning project.”
