Pictured are the Nevada elementary students, selected on artistic ability, who took part in this year’s Design An Ad project with the Nevada Journal. Thanks to the generosity of these businesses and organizations — Big 8 Tyre, Block Party Studios, Central IA Towing, Nevada Kiwanis, Nevada Medical Clinic, Story County Medical Center, State Bank & Trust, Nevada Family Chiropractic, R & M Automotive, Story County Medical Senior Care, Zook’s Look, Good & Quick and the Nevada Journal — these students had the opportunity to learn a little bit about what advertising is and how to design an ad that will grab people’s attention.
