New York grocer D'Agostino Supermarkets, Inc. has revealed the winner of its contest for students to come up with a design to be featured on the new recyclable D'Ag Bag: Sean Beyer of Nassau Community College.
The over 35,000 New Yorkers who cast their votes chose Beyer's design from four selections. The other finalists were Akshar Patel of the New York Institute of Technology, Katrina Ligot of Pratt Institute, and Kar Kay Ho of Fashion Institute of Technology.
This fall Beyer's design will be featured on recyclable D'Ag Bags all over Manhattan and Westchester. First prize also includes a $1,000 scholarship and a $500 D'Agostino gift certificate.
"We've been a part of New York for 75 years and as the city changes, so do we," said D'Agostino Supermarkets president and c.o.o. Nick D'Agostino III. "But what remains constant is our dedication to our customers and to giving them the choices they want, so at D'Agostino you can request paper, plastic, or purchase a reusable green bag."
The panel that selected the top four entries consisted of Nick D'Agostino III; Casey Gillespie, editor-in-chief, Zink Magazine; Lee Tracy, artist and founder of Certainees, an environmentally responsible T-shirt company; Pat Swain, artist, photographer, and art instructor; D'Agostino director of marketing Anderson Chung; and Dave Beach, account supervisor, AdLife Marketing.
