INDIANAPOLIS —Shelby Bertsch, a freshman majoring in illustration at Columbus (Ohio) College of Art and Design, has been named the overall winner of Celadon’s “Art for the Long Haul” student art contest. The contest is part of Celadon Group Inc.’s 25th Birthday Celebration.

The submission selected as the “Best of Show” was picked from numerous entries received from college students throughout the U.S., Canada, and Mexico. Shelby’s submission portrays an animated girl gazing into the distance with her hair flowing in the wind.

The trailer wrapped with the winning submission was on display in front of the New York Stock Exchange when Celadon’s Chairman and CEO Steve Russell, accompanied by members of Celadon’s management team and Board of Directors, rang the opening bell on April 23. The trailer will be incorporated in Celadon’s birthday party to be celebrated at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis. Upon conclusion of the birthday festivities, the trailer will reenter service in Celadon’s fleet of approximately 3,000 tractors and 10,000 trailers.

“We’re delighted with the outcome of the ‘Art for the Long Haul’ student art contest,” said Russell. “The contest was a fun way to support the arts and celebrate Celadon’s 25th birthday — congratulations to Shelby for being selected as the overall winner!”
