Fulton graduate wins design contest in Russia

Rebecca (Moffatt) Wichmann tries to do her part when it comes to the environment.

"I had always tried to conserve what I could, and encourage those around me to do little things, instead of trying to make big changes which are often too much to maintain," Wichmann said.

Now, through her artistic talents, Wichmann has the opportunity to affect change on a larger scale.

Wichmann, a 26-year-old Fulton native, is working on her graduate degree in art history at the European University of St. Petersburg in Russia. She recently won first place in the "Green Europe" graphic design contest for a poster she designed. The poster is in Russian and is translated as "Our generation will separate want and need." Wichmann's design will be distributed across Europe in postcards and posters to provoke European youth to take part in environmental protection.
