BayHawks unveil Green Game uniform designed by HS student

Posted on March 24, 2017, in Academics, Events

An NBA Development League affiliate will be wearing a uniform tomorrow night designed by a General McLane High School student during her Graphic Design class.

The Erie BayHawks unveiled its Green Game uniform at General McLane High School to General McLane sophomore Kaley Berger, winner of the BayHawks first-ever uniform design contest.

These uniforms will be worn by the BayHawks during their game against the Raptors 905 on Saturday, March 25, and will also be auctioned off during the game to benefit a green community project. Fans attending Saturday’s game will also receive a poster featuring the uniform design, courtesy of the Erie-Times News.

The contest was a collaboration between the Erie BayHawks,  Erie Arts & Culture and Green Mountain Energy. Berger received a special uniform with her name on it. Berger’s uniform design features her depiction of Erie’s Bicentennial Tower and the lakefront.

Freshman Ellen Eisert placed second and Mrs. Hodas placed third in the contest. Students created their designs in Mrs. Hodas’ Graphic Design class. The BayHawks Uniform Design contest called all artists, designers and photographers in Erie County, of all ages, to submit a design that celebrates a ‘Greener Erie’. The design needed to incorporate recognizable elements of Erie, along with a depiction of what energy conservation and environmental sustainability mean in today’s age.
