Terra Linda Elementary Student Wins Salt Lake City Stars Art Contest with His Stars Jersey Design

Student with SLC Stars jersey he designedFor one fun night the Salt Lake City Stars were sporting really cool and creative new jerseys and you might be surprised by who designed them. It was a 5th grade student at Terra Linda Elementary School. Adriel Ochoa entered an art contest sponsored by the SLC Stars asking for students to design a jersey for the team, an NBA G league affiliated with the Utah Jazz.

Adriel’s design was selected as the winner and players were excited to wear the newly designed jerseys for one game last month. Adriel said his design represented white for the snow, yellow for the Stars and blue for the Great Salt Lake.

Adriel was invited to the Star’s game to be recognized along with his family, friends, and school principal. In fact, all Terra Linda Elementary students were invited to the basketball game as well as their parents and the community.

To make the evening even more special, six Terra Linda Elementary School teachers were honored at halftime for their incredible contributions to education. Congratulations to:

  • Sarah Southworth
  • Stephanie Owen
  • Gabby Jones
  • Dorrelyn Smith
  • Natalie Newbold
  • Coach-Shelly Lloyd

Thanks to the Utah Stars for supporting students, teachers, and education! Go SLC Stars!
