FAMU Student Designs Program Cover for the Walt Disney World Florida Classic Presented By State Farm

Florida A&M University (FAMU) student Roderic Edwards is the design contest winner for the Walt Disney World Florida Classic XXIX football game and the State Farm Battle of the Bands program covers.

This makes the second consecutive year a FAMU School of Journalism and Graphic Communication (SJGC) student has won the contest.

“We applaud Roderic for this recognition,” said Dean James Hawkins, SJGC. “This award reflects the caliber of our students and will motivate other students to continue to set the standard of excellence in the graphics industry.”

Edwards, a 23-year-old senior graphic design student and Pensacola, Fla. native, said a classmate told him about the contest.

“I am elated to win and thankful for the opportunity to demonstrate my God-given talent,” said Edwards.

In addition to having his work featured on thousands of programs, Edwards will receive two tickets to the Florida Classic

XXIX football game (BCC vs. FAMU) in Orlando on November 22 and two tickets to the Battle of the Bands.

Edwards’ career goal is to eventually own a graphic design company.
