Congratulations Hailey!

The Princeton Whooping Crane Festival Committee reached out to teacher Corrie Mussell when they needed a design for a T-shirt, which will raise awareness for Whooping crane conservation.

One of the elements we’ll be featuring at the upcoming Crane Festival is a HUGE origami crane. Now when I say ‘HUGE’ I don’t mean bigger than your average folded origami crane that you can hold in the palm of your hand.

I mean HUGE!

When the students at the Princeton school and Mako Pellerin finish folding this origami masterpiece – it will feature a wingspan of more than 30 feet!

So, it’s only fitting that this large paper crane has a T-shirt dedicated to it. Enter 17 summer school art students and teacher Corrie Mussell. The students submitted designs for the T-shirt, which will be given to the students & teachers involved in constructing the origami crane. (There will be no additional shirts for sale).

T-shirtThe design chosen by the committee was created by Hailey Treder. Hailey will receive a gift bag including a shirt, mug, and $50 chamber gift certificate, redeemable at any Princeton, WI retailer.

Thanks to Doug & Mako Pellerin who are donating the shirts to the students helping to create the HUGE origami crane, which will be unveiled at the Whooping Crane Festival Sept. 10th at the Princeton School.

As you can see, the committee had a difficult time selecting just one T-shirt design.

We hope you can join us at this year’s FESTIVAL Sept. 8 – 11

    It is so inspiring to have students and teachers involved in the Whooping crane festival – these young people are the future of conservation and the Whooping crane reintroduction effort is the perfect venue for learning the importance of conservation.
