MEDINA — The artwork of a dozen area high school students will appear on gasoline pumps, grocery store scales and all the other business devices certified by the county to ensure accuracy.
Medina County Auditor Mike Kovack sponsored the countywide contest to design the seals used by his Weights and Measures Department to verify that a measuring device has been tested and found accurate.
“The top 12 students’ seals will be printed and affixed to each measuring device in the county to indicate that it is accurate,” Kovack said. “If you fill up your car or buy groceries at the store, you will see a seal on the pump or the register.
“Those seals were designed by students from our county. We honor them by using their designs for the entire year.”
The winning seals for the Inspected and Sealed Category are by Elizabeth Kruggel and Emily Rozsahegyi, Cloverleaf High School; Cody Thoma and Montana Pawlak, Wadsworth High School; and Austin Dearth and David Mason, Medina County Career Center.
The winning seals for the Passed Price Verification Category are by Jeremy Schroeder, Olivia Addis, Cameron Baier and Michaela Blom, Wadsworth High School; and Jonah Madzay and Jeannette Wagner, Career Center.
The top winner in each category will receive a $100 U.S. savings bond at a March 11 ceremony at the Career Center.
